Dirty Ho

Dirty Ho ★★★★★

Executioners from Shaolin might be more personal, 36 Chambers more detailed about kung fu philosophy and Eight Diagram Pole Fighter the most beautiful and elegiac, but Dirty Ho has the greatest fight choreography and so it remains the greatest of all Lau Kar Leung films. What can one say about the final two action setpieces when Yu and Liu finally achieve total sync? Except for a couple of Astaire's better routines from the 30s, bodies in motion were never put to such stunning expressive effect.
