The Taking of Tiger Mountain Bluray Contest

18

Legendary Hong Kong filmmaker Tsui Hark’s (Once Upon a Time in China franchise) latest action-adventure epic THE TAKING OF TIGER MOUNTAIN debuts on Blu-ray, DVD and digital HD June 2 from Well Go USA Entertainment. Set in the late 1940s, a bandit warrior, the leader of a liberation army and an investigator on a clandestine mission find their fates intertwined. As the action unfolds, audiences are immersed in the “swooping camera, spurting blood, flying bullets, airborne knives, falling rocks, cannon fire and — most spectacularly — a covert raid by ski” (Ben Kenigsberg, THE NEW YORK TIMES).

 

THE TAKING OF TIGER MOUNTAIN stars Zhang Hanyu (Special ID, Back to 1942), Lin Gengxin (Young Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea Dragon), Tong Liya (Beijing Love Story), Tony Leung Ka Fai (Tai Chi Zero, Tai Chi Hero) and Yu Nan (The Expendables 2).  The film is based on Qu Bo’s novel “Tracks in the Snowy Forest,” which also served as the basis for “Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy,” one of eight model operas produced during the Cultural Revolution.  Bonus materials include interviews with the filmmaker and cast.

 

Synopsis:

Tsui Hark’s thrilling adaptation of Qu Bo’s beloved adventure novel stars Tony LEUNG Ka-fai as a ruthless bandit, ruling the lands of Northeast China from his fortress on Tiger Mountain. A captain of the Liberation Army (LIN Gengxin) launches a counter-insurgency against the dictator with a skilled investigator (ZHANG Hanyu) sent to destroy the gang from the inside.

    Tough call! He produced The Killer (John Woo directed), which is one of the best HK movies out there, but as director, Once Upon a Time in China II would be my pick.

  2. My favourite ‘Tsui Hark film’ is The Blade. I hated it the first time I saw it but over time I appreciate it more and more with every viewing and how unique and different it is to everything else edpecially that amazing climactic duel and the hauntingly beautiful song over the end credits ( Cantonese version is better ). If we are saying my favourite he was ever involved in though technically is not ‘a Tsui Hark film’ I would have to say John Woo’s The Killer is my favourite.
