The Dragon From Russia (1990)

Just finished watching Clarence Fok’s  (Clarence Ford) The Dragon From Russia.  It’s a film adaptation of the popular Japanese manga Crying Freeman starring Sam Hui and Maggie Cheung. Like many of Fok’s films, The Dragon From Russia is filled with dazzling cinematography and eye catching set pieces but the story is unfortunately nonexistent.  Even though Sam Hui is heavily doubled for many of the stunts, the film remains watchable because of his charisma and unflappable charm.

Look, this isn’t  essential cinema, but if you’re looking to kill some time The Dragon From Russia is up for the task. It’s baffling, silly and a whole lotta fun.
