1. Don't watch Zhou Xingchi. When it was first released, I watched pirated discs with my parents for half an hour, and I was not interested. Yesterday, I was selecting films on Tencent, and I saw this. The legendary classic? Do not believe in evil, come and see. After reading it, wow, so good-looking, it is indeed a classic!
2 It looks like a Hong Kong gangster, but it is actually a martial arts inside. Against the modern firearms, our kung fu is still the best. Wow, so cool. Why does kung fu only exist in ancient costume dramas, and whether it is Western fighting or Jackie Chan Bruce Lee-style kung fu, as long as you encounter a gun, you will be persuaded immediately. History seems to be like this. Our economy and culture were at their peak during the Kangxi and Qianlong periods. The result is that we are happy. When we encounter the products of the industrial revolution, it is all over. As a result, such a film seems to say, wow, the things left by our Chinese ancestors are not so weak, they are still very powerful, and they are hidden deep.
3 There are many films that promote the truth, goodness and beauty. Even if it is a magical film like Soul Catcher, it is inevitable that an elder will come to wash the protagonist's soul, and put out the big truth to make people aftertaste. There is no such plot in Zhou Xingchi's kung fu. But when you see the male protagonist, you know that he is a real good person, who wants to do bad things but can't be ruthless. Such truth, goodness and beauty are in his bones, and his choices and actions have been explained to everyone. When you see those neighbors in the compound, you know that they are good people. They are simple and simple when they are free, but they are responsible for saving the scene when something goes wrong. Isn't this the so-called hero? When you see Huang Shengyi with red lips and white teeth, you will know that your good ones will be remembered for a lifetime, even if you can't see them.

I don't know how Zhou Xingchi's other films are, I haven't seen it, but this one is at least worthy of the title of master. This Hollywood is different. This is the master of the Chinese people. Foreigners can't understand the feelings inside, and they can't understand the rivers and lakes and heroes in martial arts. Just like Ang Lee's "Eating and Drinking Men and Women", you show foreigners that they can't understand it, and you don't know where the feelings in it come from. You have to show them Teenage Pie to empathize with them.

    Landlady: Becoming a top fighter takes time, unless you're a natural-born kung-fu genius, and they're 1 in a million.

    Barber: [Does martial arts routine] It's obvious I'm the one.

    Landlady: [immediately punches him in the face] Don't think so.
