A Man Called Hero (1999)


Starring : Ekin Cheng, Nicholas Tse, Shu Kei, Yuren Biao

Director: Andrew Lau

A big-budget follow-up to the 1998 Hong Kong smash hit "The Storm Riders", again from Golden Harvest Films. The movie attains fleeting echoes of Sergio Leone's "Once Upon a Time in America"; the plot is overflowing with characters and subplots, but is far easier to follow than "Storm Riders," thanks to much more fluid lensing by returning director Andrew Lau. It contains a remarkably fine score by Chan Kwong-wing, which knits together the story's sprawling emotional fabric. Scripter Manfred Wong's extensive flashback structure, with three characters giving different perspectives on the hero's odyssey, works surprisingly well.

After a simple initiation ceremony, Hero goes home excited but finds his parents were killed. What had happened was, Gian took a group of foreigners to Hero’s parents and forced them to hand over the Red Sword, their family treasure. In order to take revenge, Hero kills the foreigners. Thereafter, he is wanted by the police and signs up to be a coal miner in America…
