Editorial Reviews

Cold blooded killer Zhang Ning sneaks back into China to blend in. He is quickly pursued by two fierce and brutal bounty hunters. A grisly battle ensues between the killer, bounty hunters and cops. After a flurry of gunfights, martial arts combats, car chases, equestrian acrobatics, and pyrotechnic extravaganza, many a life will be lost and much honor and glory won in this grimly exciting Chinese Martial Arts Western that should not be missed.

1.0 out of 5 stars terrible in every way June 29, 2012
Format:DVD
No plot even though it is supposedly based on a true story. Terrible acting despite descent actors. Action is sub par at best. The worst chinese film I have ever seen. Avoid this one for sure.

Format:DVD
I watch almost exclusively Asian films because I need sub titles to follow a movie. I have seen a lot of Korean, Chinese, and Hindi films. This film is silly and ugly. It has no idea what it wants to be or do. While the acting is good, stunts and production are just hokey, unrealistic, and bad.

NONE of these characters inspire a "Yay!" or "Wow" or "Awwwww...." They are all repulsive, ugly, stunted animals. Even allowing for traditional "cultural" type characters (the "yelling man," the "fat man," etc.) these were just unwatchable.

I'm sorry, but I can't tell what the hey-yell I'm looking at. And when there is suddenly a gratuitous murder of innocent people---I was sickened, and just turned it off.

Apparently some like this film a lot. However, I don't think you should have to research a film at multiple sources before doing a "review," that you want to come out a certain way. I didn't like this film. I didn't research this film---I don't care what anybody else said, I'm reporting to you sincerely what EYE felt.

Watch it, of course, if you think it's for you. However, you will be able to tell by the opening action scene(s) whether you think this film actually has a script, because after that scene we just bop on to the next, with no explanation. I'm sitting there going, all like, "Wha? Wha? Wha' the hey-yell was THAT about? Wha? Huh? Wa? "

This opening scene actually seemed like it was a much better story-line. Incredible girl dressed like a rock star walking alone in the desert, abandoned by a carful of vicious slobs---who is she; where did she come from; why was she abandoned alone; what does she know about the lost, mystic, golden saber of Ghengis Khan? Oh, never mind....

1.0 out of 5 stars Kiosk <1 October 1, 2012
Format:DVD
Poorly written script and poor editing results in a a mess of a story direction; just a mishmash of disjointed scenes. It's as if they added a bit of American western with gangsters with an assassination and assassins for them; then add in police that seem drawn from keystone cartoon cops with a little bit of Hollywood style chase scenes and shootouts. The story was hard to follow; the acting seemed artificial acting-like. I don't get headaches but this movie gave me one from both lack of believable story to awkward cinematography.

2.0 out of 5 stars wanders until it gets lost April 27, 2013
By ribcage
Format:Blu-ray
Wind Blast can at least get credit for style. It's trying something new in making a modern day Chinese pseudo-western. However, it fails by giving us shadows of real characters, a weak to non-existent story, and awkwardly paced action segments that blast their way out of nowhere and disappear just as suddenly leaving us with long stretches of a wildly meandering film.

It was interesting to watch, but very slow. It took me more than half of the movie to really figure out what was going on with all the characters, and still I couldn't fathom all of their motivations after that. Wind Blast wanders fiercely, and ultimate ends up lost in some muddled corner that seems like a chart brainstorming a plot without organizing it into a proper story.

The action sequences were good, but they were also random and few and far between, so action junkies won't be able to sift through a confusing movie for any gems of violence there.

So, Wind Blast certainly isn't one of the slowest most confusing flicks ever made, but it's not far from those ranks at all.

2.0 out of 5 stars I HAVE A BULLET PROOF COAT July 7, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
A former ex-illegal boxer becomes a paid assassin when he is swindled out of his money. After killing a man in Hong Kong he is on the lam. He is pursued, along with his girlfriend into the western desert area of China by other assassins (paid for by the man who paid for the Hong Kong hit) the local police and the Provincial or State police.

The music switches from steel western guitar to flute. The bad guys lament over things like guilt and fate. There is also a big abortion issue as a woman divorces her husband because every year she gets pregnant and he demands she have an abortion. We discover why the Chinese never developed guns, because they can dodge bullets and jump off a 20 foot building and land on their feet. Their vehicles are geared so they can travel as fast in reverse as they do going forward and they have amazing cell phone reception. And the women don't inhale their cigarettes. Yes, there is something to be said for state capitalism if... they didn't blur out the only sex scene in the film.

The movie is hard to follow until an explanation is dropped on you and even then I found myself confusing characters.

F-bomb ( I read it on the screen) no sex or nudity unless you count a quick distant blur.
