Critic Reviews for Last Hurrah for Chivalry
Woo instills Chang Cheh's tutelage with his own obsessions, and ushers action cinema into the new decade
The half-dozen great set pieces (including one in a room full of candles) make this one worth a try, at least for fans.
Made by John Woo before he became synonymous with modern Hong Kong gangster movies
Audience Reviews for Last Hurrah for Chivalry
Early stuff from Woo, already showing the themes common in his future films, friendship and loyalty. Five Venoms star Wei Bai (the snake) plays the main lead while Damian Lau plays a cool drinking swordsman.
The second half stretches a bit too much, and the fights seems to get too redundant. Still, a very decent option for any HK aficionado.
I should probably give this film another chance, but the first time 'round it really didn't work for me.
