Movie Review: The Taking of Tiger Mountain

Touted as one of the year's biggest Chinese film's, Tsui Hark’s (徐克) latest action film “The Taking of Tiger Mountain”《智取威虎山》 is now screening in cinemas!

Starring Tony Leung , Lin Gengxin, Han Geng and Zhang Hanyu, THE TAKING OF TIGER MOUNTAIN is adapted from the famous Chinese novel "Tracks in the Snowy Forest" set during the civil war era of 1946, when ruthless bandits occupied Northeastern China and threatened the lives of civilians there. The most powerful bandit of all was Mountain Eagle (Tony LEUNG Ka-fai), with an impenetrable fortress up in Tiger Mountain and armed with strong artillery. Unit 203 of the Liberation Army, led by SHAO (LIN Gengxin), was crossing the Northeastern region when they encountered Eagle's men raiding a village. SHAO decided to stay and fight against Eagle. Headquarters sent a skilled investigator YANG (ZHANG Hanyu), who infiltrated Eagle's gang as an undercover. The duo was soon engaged in a battle of wits with the cold-blooded Eagle, deep inside the snowy forest.
My review:
Love the story and the action part in this movie!
The actors in the movie were very professional in their acting.
It is definitely a great movie to watch with your friends and family. I was kind of shocked to see Tony Leung's transformation as the Mountain Eagle in the movie. The story was touching at some part too.
