The Legend of the Flying Swordsman

A slapdash kung fu drama from Hong Kong, about a controlling father (Sonny Chiba), his rebellious alcoholic son (Dave Wong), the son's unhappy wife (Gigi Lai), and her lover, a Korean swordsman. The film borrows its time-loop, multiple-viewpoint structure from Wong Kar-wai's Ashes of Time, but that film's iconic performances and delirious visual poetry are replaced by laughable acting (heavy on the flared nostrils and arched eyebrows) and an irritating sound track of hip-hop and Canto-pop. Bosco Lam directed, more or less. 84 min.
