Dragon Gate Inn

Rating: 8/10

Looking back over the string of martial arts films that I have viewed over the past few months, I'd have to say my favorite has been Come Drink With Me. Much of my appreciation is due to the artful direction of King Hu. Dragon Gate Inn is not a Shaw Brothers production and it has a somewhat different feel. There is a purposefulness to the direction and every frame is exquisitely composed. What's missing here are interesting or memorable characters.
