UPDATE: READ THE FULL REVIEW HERE! – – – – – – – – The biggest surprise hit from Hong Kong so far is NOT a Wong Jing movie (really? how come?), but reportedly an indie kung fu comedy called GALLANTS. For Hong Kong movie lovers this one is a welcome change from the super-commercial films of the first months of the year. GALLANTS features lots of old-school HK movie style; essentially, GALLANTS is an homage to Hong Kong action films and stars of the past.
Hong Kong has always been able to produce surprising indie films seemingly coming out of nowhere, so we are happy to see that this is still possible Anno 2010. One of the producers is Andy Lau by the way; maybe he should concentrate on producing and not acting as his appearance in junk like FUTURE X-COPS is a waste of time (unless he uses the money he earned with it for producing films like GALLANTS, of course). The other producer is Gordon Lam. Directed by Derek Kwok and Clement Cheng. Starring are Chen Kuan-Tai, Leung Siu-Lung, Teddy Robin Kwan, Wong yau-Nam, JJ Jia, Siu Yam-Yam, Jin Au-Yeung, Chan Wai-Man, Li Hai-Tao, Law Wing-Cheong, Lo Meng and Goo Goon-Chung.
