Jiang Wen's latest film is an astonishing, bullet-fast action epic. Hidden Man is fueled by dazzling chase sequences, gorgeous visuals, and pure adrenaline. It's the final film in a 1930s-set trilogy, but it may leave you panting for more. In a tour-de-force opening sequence, a lethal attack upends a martial arts master's birthday party. One of his disciples, Zhu, had conspired with a Japanese agent, Nemoto, to betray the master. Only young Li Tianran escapes the ambush. Years later, Li has grown up in San Francisco and has received advanced training in both Chinese martial arts and American spycraft. He's sent back to China on a mission, but he's driven by his own urge to take revenge on Zhu and Nemoto, the men who killed his master. Jiang packs Hidden Man with a raft of film references, from Hong Kong actioners to Quentin Tarantino. —Toronto International Film Festival
