Flaming Brothers (1987)

3/10 - Utterly dreadful
Reviewed by Simon on 04 September 2009
A complete arse of a film, with a script loaded up with toxic levels of cheese that makes it impossible to take any of the over-cooked drama seriously, and directed with all the finesse of a truck crashing through a crowded bus stop. Completely inane and ridiculous. The action scenes are mostly amateurish, just running about pointing guns with no precision and then wriggling about with a grimace on whilst squibs burst all over the body. Embarrassing. A few of Chow Yun-Fat's scenes with Pat Ha are OK though.
