Movie Info

ZHANG Baomin (Song Yang) is a miner who works far away from home because of some disputes he had with the townsfolk years ago, whilst his wife and son remain near the mountains running a small sheep farm. One day, Baomin learns that his son Lei hasn't come back from shepherding for two days. He goes back to find his son. His appearance back in town makes people anxious. Searching for his son, Baomin heads for the rough and dangerous mountains, but the resentment and distrust of the townsfolk leads them to turn a blind eye to the reality of a missing child, and the corruption and danger permeating their lives.

A powerful and fatalistic illustration of the Chinese rural underclass and its futile fight against oppressive social forces.

Wrath of Silence is a damning condemnation against the dictatorial elite and their tyrannical control on working class citizens, wrapped up in a slick, commercial package that's sure to satisfy both action and drama fans alike.

June 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Long and twisty and attention-grabbing from the outset, this Chinese western cloaks its human poignancy in intricate action choreography and occasionally gory thrills.
