Young swordsman Li Tianran is the only survivor of a lethal attack at his martial arts master’s birthday party – a coup devised by one his disciples, Zhu, and a Japanese agent, Nemoto, to take power away from the master. On his long, arduous escape, he makes his way to San Francisco, where he masters both his advanced martial arts and American spycraft trainings. When the young swordsman, now played with enormous charm by Chinese-Canadian superstar Eddie Peng, is sent back to China on a mission, his own conscience won’t let him rest until he returns back home to take revenge on the very men who killed his master.
The third and last installment in what has come to be director Jiang Wen’s gangster trilogy, preceded by Let the Bullets Fly (2010) and Gone with the Bullets (2014), is a fast-paced, action-filled epic that keeps the adrenaline rushing and the heart beating fast. With Jiang himself taking on the role of Lan, a sneaky businessman with questionable motives, Hidden Man is a fun, exciting escape into a 1930s China brimful of mystery and action that will definitely leave you wanting for more.
