Good to see Carol Lai is still directing. I really loved her first two films. But it seems like since then she's been stuck making thrillers and horror movies.

Looking forward to seeing Let the Bullets Fly on the big screen! And getting less enthusiastic about Flying Swords after being reminded of how great New Dragon Inn was.

Looking forward to seeing Let the Bullets Fly on the big screen!
Lucky you. I will have to satisfy myself with the DVD. :(
I also see that China Lion is going to distribute "Love" next week.
