REIGN OF ASSASSINS [ 劍雨 ]
- Reign of Assassins felt like old school Hong Kong cinema. Despite my dislike for the post-production audio this was a solid film, though both Kevin and I seem to agree that Michele Yeoh needed an older leading man as a romantic interest. For those who haven’t seen it I would strongly recommend the Swordsman [ 笑傲江湖 ]series (Swordsman, Swordsman II, and The East is Red) which feature similar themes of competing schools and a powerful object that rival martial arts clans compete for. Swordsman II with Brigitte Lin and Jet Li tends to hold high regard in the west, but I am more partial to the original Swordsman as I actually preferred Sam Hui in the title role.
