Critics reviews

It’s no less tonally divergent and genre-bending than The Sun Also Rises (which had failed with critics and audiences), but it also provides some genre thrills, with its nutty action-movie plot, set in the 1920s, about a Robin Hood–like bandit who poses as the new governor of a small village, only to find himself doing battle with the local warlord (played with murderous glee by Hong Kong superstar Chow Yun-fat).
