Audience Reviews for The Barefooted Kid
Absolutely one of the best Hong Kong kungfu actions ever made. Tempo's little bit too quick, but other than that, this film is simply awesome entertainment like old Japanese action films.
The ending is kind of a downer, but the action is jaw-dropping. Typical for HK films made in 1993, but still fun.
Action films cannot often be described as beautiful, but this forerunner to the nouveau martial arts flicks by the likes of Zhang Yimou and Ang Lee is a joy to behold, and has some of the best fight sequences I have ever seen. An unusual mix of breathless action and stunning visuals by Johnny To.
