Hero ★★★½

A period rags to riches gangster story that hits all of the expected beats (It's a remake of Shaw's classic BOXER OF SHANTUNG), but is painted on a surprisingly large canvas and features Yuen Biao popping out of a coffin with a hundred guns. This was the last action film Cory Yuen directed in Hong Kong and he goes all out with a trap-filled climax that is shocking in its bloodiness.
