Bargain-basement nonsense - Reign of Assassins review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
02/02/2020

Like most second-rate Hong Kong martial arts films, most of this is ridiculous and boring. What’s Michelle Yeoh doing playing an assassin called Drizzle in tosh like this? To mislead punters, the usually reliable John Woo is credited on the DVD cover as co-director, but in the film’s credits he’s listed only as producer. The plot is nonsense, the acting irrelevant and the arbitrary fight scenes shot too close-in and over-edited. The whole film is a mess.
