Bodyguards and Assassins (Shi Yue Wei Cheng)

de Teddy Chen

Trailer

Synopsis

An ingenious political fiction plot, the attempt to assassinate Sun Yat-sen in 1906 Hong Kong, is used as the backbone of this luxurious action drama that places every cent of its well spent budget before the spectator´s eyes and culminates in a real time, martial arts mega blockbuster, where there´s even room for a tribute to Battleship Potemkin. Teddy Chen's best film to date, an immediate box-office hit and multi award winner wherever it goes, it manages to extract the very best from an incomparable cast in a balanced combination of power, emotionality and historical review that only Hong Kong cinema is capable of turning out.
