"Time and Tide"
Directed by Tsui Hark
Nicholas Tse and Wu Bai star in the story of a
bodyguard and a soldier of fortune who, despite their friendship, end up on
opposite sides of an assassination plot. The story gets very convoluted, but
"...the plot in Time and Tide is no more than a platform for the
astounding action sequences, which exhibit all the kinetic energy and
big-screen imagination that Hark is famous for. They are spectacular and
spectacularly long, going on and on as they continually up the ante and
bulldoze the envelope" (John Petrakis, Chicago Tribune). Cantonese
and English with English subtitles. 113 minutes.
