Editorial Reviews

Ringo Lam Ling-tung's BURNING PARADISE finds legendary Ching Dynasty heroes Fong Sai-yuk (DRUNKEN MASTER III's Willie Chi Tian-sheng) and Hung Hei-kwun (Yang Sheng) caught up in the Manchu government's quest to exterminate the students of Shaolin Temple (the premise of several martial arts films produced at Shaw Brothers). Following his capture at the hands of the Manchu general Crimson (John Ching Tung), Fong is incarcerated with his fellow pupils at Red Lotus Temple, a subterranean netherworld riddled with booby traps.

Format: DVD
For a brief period in the late 80's and early 90's, Ringo Lam was one of the key HK directors to watch. He made the original CITY ON FIRE (a stylish Chow Yun-Fat crime flick that influenced one later US crime film in both story and imagery) and later directed FULL CONTACT, another great movie. Lam more recently made MAXIMUM RISK, an average Van Damme flick, and has reportedly had variable success since then, but his earlier work is still vital and enthralling. BURNING PARADISE is my pick as his best film, a vicious gothic fantasy made with a sizeable budget during the peak years of the HK film boom, apparently created with little outside interference to prevent Lam from exploring some seriously dark and grim territory. It's a powerful film, loaded with enthralling set pieces, that mixes the martial arts, horror and fantasy genres in an angry, perhaps almost visionary manner. There are few other films quite like it.

Beginning as a balls-to-the-wall martial arts epic with a likeable band of heroes (one being Fong Sai-Yuk, a character portrayed elsewhere by Jet Li), BURNING PARADISE soon sends the leads on a mission through a giant, darkly lit, Temple-of-Doom style building full of vicious hidden traps. The frequent dangers the group encounters are both harrowing and horrible, and their slow, desperate navigation through the title locale - a tense, unsettling journey full of gory moments and formidable enemies intent on stopping them dead in their tracks - makes up much of the rest of the movie. The temple is a tour-de-force, a lavishly designed expression of menace and horror decorated with grotesque art direction, and loaded with hidden dangers throughout its grim interior.
