1920's China is a lawless land. Corrupt government officials buy and sell their positions, while marauding gangs of bandits roam the countryside. One of the most feared is the Mah-jongg Gang, led by the infamous and hyper-intelligent Pocky Zhang (Jiang Wen, In The Heat of the Sun). The stakes quickly rise to ludicrous proportions in masterfully vicious action-comedy filled with Machiavellian double- and triple-crosses, razor-sharp wordplay, and hundreds of thousands of bullets. The rare international comedy that translates perfectly, China's highest-grossing domestic film of all time will have you laughing and cringing, often at the same time.
