A Man Called Hero (1999) - action
Highly-anticipated comic book adaptation survives a complete belly flop, but the result is hardly Olympic caliber. Manfred Wong and Andrew Lau’s follow-up to the hugely successful Storm Riders is yet another Ma Wing-Sing manga classic.
The story concerns Wah Ying-Hung, a Chinese hero in the early 20th Century who wields a legendary glowing red blade dubbed The Blood Sword. Born under the Star of Death, Wah Ying-Hung (or Hero to be literal) has the unfortunate destiny of causing harm to those around him. Thus, he must remain alone and such is his tragic predicament. Cinematically, he’s embodied by Andrew Lau’s main actor Ekin Cheng, who has the hair of a legendary hero but hardly the presence. He can do intense when he wants, but he can’t rivet you to the screen like Lau Ching-Wan or even Louis Koo Tin-Lok. Ekin Cheng is a handsome, stoic fellow who lucked into playing these heroic types, and he’s a serviceable enough hero.
