Taking Of Tiger Mountain, The

“The finest 3D visuals in recent mainland Chinese cinema… delivers sinewy battles and twisty espionage” – Variety

It’s 1946, and as civil war engulfs China, a group of bandits – led by the dangerous, charismatic Lord Hawk (Tony Leung Ka-fai) – are strengthening their hold on the north, waging a campaign of terror from an impregnable mountain stronghold. With the fate of the nation at stake, a small group of soldiers prepare an impossible assault against the fortress: a daring plan that hinges on infiltrating the ranks of the outlaw gang.

Legendary Hong Kong genre king Tsui Hark (Once Upon a Time in China, Seven Swords) pulls out all the stops for a gritty, guns blazing retelling of one of the Cultural Revolution’s most beloved fables. A power-packed action-thriller with a distinctively Hong Kong edge, The Taking of Tiger Mountain is visually spectacular, full of the unexpected and unashamedly epic.
