Flaming Brothers Review

Last night I was able to catch up with heroic bloodshed classic, Flaming Brothers. Like many of the films in the genre, Flaming Brothers starts off rather lazily with a few gun fights scattered here and there to hold the viewer’s attention. Alan Tang is the epitome of cool while Chow Yun Fat does his best to breathe some life into an otherwise stereotypical role. Thankfully, things pick up when slimy Patrick Tse’s goes berserk and sends the film into over the top territory.

The final shootout is gloriously bloody and a tad bit homoerotic.

    Very cool flick. Written by WKW. AWESOME doodle! That should have been the cover art! =D

    Holy shit, you’re right WKW did write the script. Huh, I guess now we know why he doesn’t use scripts for his own movies.

    Hey KingWho? Aside from Hong Kong 1941, Tragic Hero and Rich and Famous are there any other movies in which Chow is paired with Alex Man?

  3. Kingwho says:

    I think those 3 movies were it? I don’t think they did any TV together, either?

  4. smirk2u says:

    Huh, what are some of your favorite Alex Man flicks?

    I only assume they are holding hands like in your doodle above.
