Critic Reviews for Mr. Six (Lao Pao Er)

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

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.

December 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."

December 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.

December 21, 2015 | Full Review…

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

December 21, 2015 | Full Review…

Hu and actor Feng Xiaogang transform Mr. Six into a creature capable of making and admitting to mistakes, feeling and expressing sincere emotion.

July 3, 2016 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

The film is a compelling character study meshed with a thriller that gives it a sense of urgency.
