Critic Reviews for Mr. Six (Lao Pao Er)

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (2)

  • Mr Six is a comic, elegiac film that never settles into one particular genre or mood.

    Aug 14, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The baggy 137-minute story drowns out Mr. Feng's assorted sharp moments with hoary family drama and clumsy plotting, and Li Yifeng is generic as Mr. Six's son.

    Dec 25, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The travails of an old gangster in a contemporary Beijing overrun with privileged brats is at the heart of the largely winning "Mr. Six."

    Dec 24, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Constructed as the long, inward-gazing buildup to an epic showdown on a frozen lake, Guan Hu's genre-subverting drama could just as easily be an elegy for a disappearing style of filmmaking.

  • Where Guan excels is in straight dramatization, like the moving, beautifully acted reconciliation in a restaurant between gruff father and impatient son.

    Dec 21, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Hu Guan could easily shoot an action film that focuses on the battles between the old and new criminals; however, he decided to direct the film toward Mr. Six's character and focus on realism
