    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    It is marvelously funny - a screwball comedy with more layers than a pearl - and visually sumptuous. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    A good-natured and highly enjoyable goof. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    As an allegory on power, corruption and rough justice, it has flashes of intelligence and political acumen. show more

    Simon Abrams Slant Magazine

    Let the Bullets Fly is an intentionally overheated and very funny comedy about how the best-laid plans tend to fall apart in spectacular fashion. show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Low on nuance and high on body count, the movie is primarily of interest to fans of Asian action spectacles and followers of the charismatic Chow Yun-fat (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), here cast as both a dandyish villain and his idiotic double. show more

    V.A. Musetto New York Post

    At 132 minutes, the film is at least half an hour too long. Nobody asked me, but the best solution would be to keep the action sequences (such as the robbery of a horse-drawn steam train, an homage to Sergio Leone's "Once Upon a Time in the West''), and scrap the allegedly "witty'' dialogue and difficult-to-follow plot twists. show more

    David Fear Time Out New York

    It's best to just let the silly-to-spectacular set pieces fly by you and-tastes permitting-enjoy the Karo Syrupped ridiculousness on display. show more

    Nick Schager Village Voice

    Comedy and shifting-allegiances intrigue more than compensate for the dearth of rousing action in this 1920s-set film. show more

    Variety

    A rollicking, violent, Western-cum-comedy that serves many masters, but adds up to an entertaining hot pot of wry political commentary and general mischief. show more
