Editorial Reviews

An assassin (Wu Jing) who is fresh from his latest kill becomes stranded on an island, where he inadvertently befriends a female police officer (Celina Jade). As the night progresses, the unspoken truth honored by the two sides of the law is broken. After the remains are found of a body that belonged to a drug lord and crime syndicate leader, chaos ensues and criminals ravage the once peaceful streets in a race against time to find the mysterious murderer, who's loose and out for blood.

If you're looking for a movie that is Academy Award quality, you're in the wrong place. But if you're in the mood for a cheesy but kick-ass action flick, Legendary Assassin absolutely delivers.

I love deep movies that make you think. But like any red-blooded man, sometimes I just need an adrenaline-pumping action movie. This film offers great fight sequences, sprinkles of intentionally corny humor, and bone-crunching action. The fight scenes were choreographed by Nicky Li, an official member of the Jackie Chan Stunt Team for over 15 years. If you've seen Rumble in the Bronx, Rush Hour, or any other Jackie Chan flick, you've witnessed Li's fight choreography.

The film was shot surprisingly well, and has a terrific music score. I was impressed with the fact that this was the directorial debut of Wu Jing AKA Jacky Wu, who also plays the lead character Bo, a soft-spoken stranger who carries a mysterious bag everywhere. Legendary Assassin also marks the acting debut of the amazingly beautiful Hong King singer Celina Jade, starring as small-town police officer.

If there's any drawback to the movie, it's that there is virtually no character development or backstories. While most of the film's characters are memorable, and have their own unique vibe, you really don't get to learn anything about them. There's not much to the plot itself, and even Bo's motive for being an assassin isn't revealed until the film's conclusion. But despite that minor frustration, there's also a small twist revealed in the final scene that I was totally surprised to have not picked up on earlier in the film.

The film was shot in Hong Kong, and the dialogue is Cantonese with English subtitles.

This marks (Jacky) Wu Jing's directorial debut, where he plays hired killer Bo Tong Lam, stranded on an island near Hong Kong, immediately after the fresh kill of a triad boss. He seems content minding his own business, waiting for the storm to pass, when he prevents an accident involving an attractive female officer (the captivating Celina Jade, soon to appear in the RZA's "Man With the Iron Fists"). They are having a nice lunch (presumably @ Long John Silvers) when she gets a radio call about 3 suspects, matching the description of some fellow diners. The apprehension attempt does not go well (these dudes are huge) and Bo reluctantly helps her, garnering more unwanted attention from the police who welcome him at the station as a hero. Will he make it off the island before the cops discover his identity and/or the triads find him?

Well, I was one of the few who liked the teaming of Wu Jing with choreographer Nicky Li in "Fatal Contact" (2006). Hey, I like good fights, and in my opinion, "FC" has some of the best, in exactly the manner I like 'em: fast, precise, fluid, and brutal, with long takes and few wires. Unfortunately "FC" also has a boring plot with (mostly) unlikable characters. "Legendary Assassin" is a (slight) improvement in the plot and character department (except for the insufferable Sammy Leung) but the fights are definitely a step in the WRONG direction. Are they awful? No, but they're extremely disappointing when considering the main duo involved. I always complain about wires but I actually don't mind them when they're not blatantly obvious. They should aid fight scenes, not star in them! The wire-work here is better than most, but that ain't sayin' much.

I am pleased with this first Jacky (Wu Jing) picture from beginning to end. An assassin (Wu Jing) as Bo Tang Lak has a job to do and gets waylaid. Everything is explained sufficiently to expect the well-choreographed fights and the manhunt for the killer(assassin) on the loose. His escapes at every turn surprise as much as his martial skills. The coincidental assistance from the local police (and the love-interest) officer (Celine Jade; a Sally Kellerman resemblance) was natural and a wonderful respite from the building body count. Here, the story expands to allow some heart to enter, an unusual plot device that works long enough to provide entrapping the wily assassin in an all-out fight against tremendous odds at the climax, who sees another day. Actually, the character of Bo Tang Lak owes much to the noir work of Alan Ladd, except that he used a gun and his fists. The plot was not as thin as some suspect; it was well-trod by the likes of Ladd or Clint Eastwood.
