Audience Reviews for Love and Glory

A paper tiger sequel or at least all signs point in that direction. Released less than four months after its predecessor "The Bride with White Hair 2" uses footage from the first film liberally to prop-up the 78 minute sequel's exposition-heavy story. Some have said this is the worst sequel to a solid film made during Hong Kong's so-called golden age and maybe they're right.

I think this film would have got better reviews if it had been called something else. The problem is Ronny Yu made a great, almost perfect film with the original Bride and this has rather a rushed feel to it. The epic, mythological feel of the first film has been replaced by something else and Brigitte Lin has no real space to develop the tragic character until right at the end when she is reunited with Leslie Cheung in a not exactly happy ending, if perhaps fitting. But the photography is wonderful and Sunny Chan is, in my opinion, a better actor than some give credit for. Joey Man does what she is there for and provides the eye candy and some nudity. They are supported by the great Helena Law Lan and Christy Chung plays it for fun and dies a suitably tragic death. This is much bloodier than the first film and the feminist, even lesbian overtones are too obvious at times. The kung fu and sword play is minimal but I sat through the film really enjoying it and if you don't consider it a sequel then it is still better than many other films.

The first item that needs to be known is that this is a two part picture. The Bride with White Hair 2 is not a sequel, but the rest of the movie (like Kill Bill 1 and 2). This segment, much like Kill Bill 2, is more about storyline than actual action. However, the ultimate resolve is appropriate.[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]“You have to love woman, but not hit a woman.”[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]“I just love my mom.”[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]The opening wedding, the first night with the wife reference, the Bride with White Hair ruining the wedding night, the Bride with White Hair’s childhood flashback, Moon accidentally shooting granny, the fight with the guardsmen in the town, the prostitute’s flashbacks, the young men breaking into the witches hideout, the prostitute and her followers attacking granny and the cabin, and the sister in-law versus Green were amongst the better portions of the film.[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]“Don’t you think we’ll have a good ending if we stay together?”[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]Ultimately, the Bride with White Hair is a better movie then its concluding sequel; although, this remains required viewing for those who have seen the previous installment. I am a huge Brigitte Lin fan. She has a few additional films I need to see (Chung King Express, Royal Tramp, Police Story, Deadly Melody, and the original Zu Warriors). Brigitte Lin is 53 years old, but you could never tell based off her acrobatic performances in these films.[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]“Judging by your kung fu, you can never defeat the witch.”[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]Grade: C+[/color][/size][/font]
