Professional Review of "7 Assassins (2013) (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)"

November 26, 2014

Although Xiong Xin Xin (also credited as Hung Yan Yan) isn't a name known to most martial arts genre fans, he's had a quietly impressive career, with a CV that includes acting as Jet Li's stunt double in Once Upon a Time in China through to working several times in Hollywood with Tsui Hark. After making his directorial debut in 2009 with the little-seen Cobweb, he returned in 2013 with 7 Assassins, throwback to the glory years of 1960s Hong Kong genre cinemas that boasts arguably one of the most star packed Hong Kong casts for some time, including Eric Tsang, Felix Wong, Gigi Leung, Max Mok, Kara Hui, Ray Liu, Ti Lung, Michael Wong, Simon Yam and others.

Taking place in the period of political turmoil during the fall of the Qing Dynasty, the film starts with Felix Wong as revolutionary outlaw Tit Wan who with his men is smuggling gold across the desert to fund an uprising, only to by waylaid and captured by the troops of Ray Liu's evil prince. Set free by the decent Prefect Zhao (Ti Lung), Tit is sent to the peaceful Golden Valley, overseen by ex-Boxer Rebellion fighter Boss Cat (Eric Tsang), who runs it as a sanctuary for those wishing to flee the violence of the world. Inevitably, the prince orders his mercenaries after Tit, forcing Boss Cat and the other villagers to take up arms once again for the good of the country.

Eric Tsang described 7 Assassins as being a "tribute to the Golden Generation" and it certainly serves well in that regard, being an unpretentious and unrepentant love story to the sword slinging adventures of old, filled with heroism, brotherhood, loyally and brave warriors sacrificing themselves for the greater good. To a fair extent, this gives the film a nostalgic, if not quite classical feel, and distracts from its lack of originality, Xiong Xin Xin following the old tried and tested formula very much to the letter, the plot progressing in a manner identical to countless Shaw Brothers films from decades past. For those who enjoy old school action this isn't a bad thing of course, and while the film creaks in places and is weighed down by an archaically simplistic good/evil dichotomy and touches of modern Chinese flag waving nationalism, it's generally fun and lively. A fast pace helps, and though Xiong cuts a swathe through his cast with ruthless abandon, packing in a few fairly surprising character deaths, there's an upbeat air of two-fisted derring-do throughout which serves the film well.

Wisely, Xiong keeps the action coming thick and fast, and the film is boosted by some solid martial arts choreography in both the one on one duels and the more epic battle scenes. While the production values do vary, the film looking oddly cheap at times, it's for the most part well-constructed, and the set pieces do impress, even if most of them are vaguely familiar. This is in no small part due to the cast, and it's hard not to get a kick out of seeing the likes of Ti Lung, Eric Tsang, Ray Liu, Max Mok and the others onscreen together again, and even though inevitably some of their appearances get lost in the mix, there's an overall sense of star quality which definitely wins the film a couple of extra points - as does the presence of the always amazing Michael Wong, on fine and amusing form as a Christian priest who sadly makes a couple of very bad life choices.

To be fair, 7 Assassins is a film which likely won't appeal to all audiences, being specifically aimed at fans of a particular period of Hong Kong cinematic genre history. For those in this target audience however, and those willing to overlook a certain degree of shabbiness and an inherent dearth of originality, it makes for entertaining viewing, and though not up to the standard of the films it imitates, there's something to be said for Xiong Xin Xin and co.'s obvious love of the form.
