The Bare-Footed Kid (1993)
Reviewed by: hokazak on 1999-12-09
Upon his father's death, a poor boy (Aaron Kwok) seeks out his father's friend (Ti Lung) and receives assistance from that friend and his employer (Maggie Cheung). Because of his martial arts prowess, he gets hired by the local police and gets tricked (and partly framed) into betraying his previous benefactors. Bad things are done, and he takes outrageous revenge. Both he and Ti Lung have wonderful one-vs-many semi-tragic/very heroic fight scenes. There is a freshness to the fight choreography which I appreciated. A good script, and 3 or 4 very charismatic main characters.
