Da lui toi (2010) Reviews

  • One of the best of the year


    Co-winner of the Audience award at the NYAFF this year, this film is a wonderful throw back to the 1970's style of martial arts films but the a twist for 2010 the stars are the older stars of the martial arts films of the 70's. The plot of the film has a young man sent to help a landlord evict some tenants of his properties so they can be turned into something wonderfully new. Along the way he makes the acquaintance of two men running a tea house(it was formerly a dojo) while they wait for their master to awaken from a 30 year long coma. You can guess which side he chooses and you know that with Bruce Leung as one of the old students you know there's going to be lots of fights. As I've said if films are suppose to be about characters then this is one of the best. Full with characters you love, you kind of like the bad guys too, this is one of the best most unexpected films I've seen this year. This is a film that allows you watch people getting beaten up and feel good at the same time. Its magical. Its also not just a martial arts film. This is a film thats for anyone wanting to see a good film. The martial arts is not the reason for the film, just a by product of its location. The film is ultimately about what is family and how we make our own. I can't recommend this film to everyone. Its a blast. And could we please have a sequel? (and a US distributor, apparently this great film doesn't have one.)

  • A Nutshell Review: Gallants

    DICK STEEL2010-03-27

    Produced under Andy Lau's Focus Films with actor Lau Kar Tung on board as producer, directors Clement Cheng and Derek Kwok have a winner on their hands, as they exalt the spirit of what it means to never give up when the odds are stacked against you, and in some way live up that spirit of theirs when they had embarked to make this project which had clear risks. It will be extremely foolish to dismiss the film outright just because it has more elderly actors than youthful ones to draw the crowd, because as the adage goes, the oldest ginger is still the best, and this film is a testament to that. Look closely and you'll see the sheer amount of veteran, legendary talent even, assembled who hail from the Shaw Brothers kung fu film era, with even the opening credits with the silhouette fights, and the way characters are introduced, paying certain homage to an era bygone. In essence, this purely Hong Kong film is an allegory of sorts to its peers in the market, where packaging and marketing are seen to be the be-all-and-end-all, rather than to rely on hard work to hone talent, or to compensate for the lack thereof. It tells of a people's indomitable spirit of not backing down, and to keep one's chin up in the face of tremendous competition, to work at what they are good at, and all will likely and hopefully be well. As the story goes, we follow the adventures of Cheung (Wong You Nam), a lifelong loser who gets bullied from the get go in his life, and gets sent by his real estate company to a remote town to assist in acquiring leases from the townsfolk so that redevelopment works can start. Naturally he gets bullied, and gets rescued by the mysterious Tiger (Leung Siu-Lung), a disciple of the once great Master Ben Law (Teddy Robin) of the Gate of Law martial arts school, who has been in coma for the last 30 years. And it seems, like in Stephen Chow's Kung Fu, this small town hides a lot more martial arts exponents, such as Law's other disciple Dragon (Chen Kuan-Tai), who together with Tiger had tried their best to keep their Master's place alive by converting it to a Teahouse, while awaiting Ben's recovery. Then there's Kwai (JJ Jia), the pretty lass who also hangs out at the Law's teahouse. Their collective backstory is something that got delivered through a fantastic animated sequence, and animation is something that gets peppered throughout the film as well when it gets down to fight sequences when deadly bone crunching blows get delivered. Since the film has in its plot the advent of the Hong Kong Martial Arts Open to seemingly promote the spirit of martial arts, as announced by rival and owner of a flashier sports club Master Pong (Chan Mai Wan), one will expect some spectacular kung fu action. The film more than delivers in this aspect, with the action choreographed by the renowned Yuen Tak, who cleverly did away with fancy wire-work, offering instead sparring sessions which are realistic and extremely riveting to watch, as the actors (most of whom have so many years of experience) put together some credible and exciting martial arts moves for the screen. Editing is also wonderfully done so that we get the best views at the front seats of a bout without the usual MTV-styled quick editing nonsense. I guarantee no matter how many martial arts films that you've seen, the ones here as choreographed will still blow your mind away. Like a Crouching Tiger and Hidden Dragon itself, if you do not buy the first act, then wait for Teddy Robin, who single-handedly stole the show right out from everyone's noses. His comic timing is perfect, and the lines that he has, sheer wit, coupled with the fact that his character's disorientation after being out of action for so many years, is something that offers rip-roaring laughter. The directors, who co-wrote the story with Frankie Tam, breathe so much life into Master Law, that you can't help but on one hand be amazed by his crazy philosophy, and on the other just laugh at it, such as his proclaimed laws of combat in the order of Guts, Power and Skill, the rationale in his disciple recruitment strategy, and chiefly, that the reason to learn Kung Fu is to fight, not exercise – which has other, better alternatives. Robin, who also contributed to the movie's music, fills his character with so much youthful energy and exuberance, makes this one of his more memorable roles that he has tackled, and left everyone in the cinema crackling with glee each time he turns on his wit. As the film explains early on, the boxing ring is a symbol of dignity and fame, and there can be only one victor and one loser. Clearly, Gallants is a winner in my books, and delivers knockout blow after knockout blow without relent. I had come with a mission to watch Hong Kong films, and this one clearly made my trip worthwhile many times over, coupled with so many hilarious moments to laugh along with. I hope it makes it to Singapore so that I can watch this on the big screen again, otherwise I'll patiently wait for its DVD release after it's done its theatrical and festival rounds. Highly recommended, without a doubt one of the best amongst the festival offerings if I may say so!

  • I get it!


    Consider warned that I will be noting a specific climactic plot point that could be considered a spoiler. Until now I have only reviewed movies if I had more to say than "I liked it" or "I didn't like it". This time my motivation is simply because I really, really liked this movie a whole lot. This movie has a magic moment that is so rare but so wonderful when it happens. Without the moment I'd rate it a 6, slightly above average for the genre and date. The moment bumps it up to a remarkable 8 out of 10. So what about that moment? When the fight is over and the loser is laughing the younger guy doesn't get it and the line is something like "You'll get it in about 20 years." Simply put - I get it now. I've been a fan of these movies for a long time and I've practiced martial arts for 35 years. I have all the aches and pains and injuries to prove it. I am not as young or as good as I once was. That's exactly why I get it now and exactly why I liked it so much.

  • Not an average Kung Fu movie.


    "Tiger & Dragon Reloaded" ("Da Lui Toi", aka "Gallants") is not your average Kung Fu movie. This is more of a down to Earth kind of movie, about the commitment to one's ideals and staying true to what you believe in. Where as there is some fighting throughout the movie, it is not your typical adrenalin-pumping martial arts with lots of young talents, nor is it an impressive display of wire-fu with people flying all over the place. No, this martial arts performed by people who are no longer in their youthful prime. But they still perform quite adequately, nonetheless. The story is about an old martial arts school now turned to a restaurant after the master fell into a coma. And as he suddenly comes out of the coma, his devoted pupils along with a couple of newcomers learn about old traditions and old ideals. Siu-Lung Leung (playing Tiger) and Kuan Tai Chen (playing Dragon) carried the movie quite nicely. But the star of the movie was without a doubt Teddy Robin Kwan (playing Master Ben Law). While it was refreshing to see a martial arts movie of this particular caliber, then the movie wasn't, sadly enough, really that outstanding. Sure, it is good for a single viewing, but it is hardly a movie that can support multiple viewings.

  • A very fun kung-fu flick


    As noted by other reviews, this film is a throwback to the old school kungfu flicks of the 60's and 70's. As the film has been well reviewed on the web already, I'll just add a few observations:
