Critic Reviews for Fong juk (Exiled)
A simmering pot of blood and yucks, accented with guitar and harmonica on the soundtrack.
The finale is a slow-motion tour de force that blends style, elegance and nuance of character in showers of blood.
Exiled is creative and bizarre, maybe too bizarre, but since most action films adhere to a cookie-cutter formula, its quirkiness is most welcome.
To packs the moments of contemplation with as much suspense as the action sequences and is a master of ratcheting up tension through small details.
Johnnie To, the director, is highly respected in this genre, and I suppose he does it about as well as you'd want it to be done, unless you wanted acting and more coherence.
Audience Reviews for Fong juk (Exiled)
the sequel to johnnie to's 'the mission' is like the bastard child of john woo and sergio leone, complete with it's own 'harmonica'. a bit thin on plot but with tons of style
Super-cool Hong Kong actioner about four hit-men who have a crisis of conscience aftre they are ordered by their ruthless boss to kill an ex-member of their gang who has decided to devote his life to his family. The story has heart, the action is stylishly violent and the cast are great. It all has a modern western feel to it all too. I wish it was longer, the film flew by very quickly.
Nostalgia trip to early 80's Hong Kong John Woo stylised shootouts. Mimics the pacing with long sections of thoughtful pondering interspersed with frenetic gun-ballets. Fortunately keeps the acting and soundtrack histrionics to a minimum. Guilty pleasure.
