Critic Reviews for Mr. Six (Lao Pao Er)

All Critics (11) | 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.

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.

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…

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