Featured reviews for

Underdog Knight, The
Twitch, by Eight Rooks source: http://twitchfilm.net/site/view/the-underdog-knight-review/
«It’s thrilling, it’s beautiful, it’s achingly sad and it’s one of the most distinctive mainstream domestic productions from mainland China in years. »
Variety, by DEREK ELLEY source: http://www.variety.com/review/VE1117939888.html?categoryid=31&cs=1
«A genre-bending mix of psychodrama, action movie, black comedy and aspirational drama, this sophomore outing by writer-director Ding Sheng works primarily due to an utterly convinced perf by young actor Liu Ye as the wacko modern-day knight errant.»
Kung Fu Cinema, by Mark Pollard - 7/10 source: http://www.kungfucinema.com/review-the-underdog-knight-2008-6477
«There is a terribly good movie contained in the story that forms THE UNDERDOG KNIGHT that doesn't surface entirely although it's still well worth watching.»
LoveHKfilm, by Kozo source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/panasia/underdog_knight.html
«There are maybe one or two effective movies in Underdog Knight, but as is, none of them are more than generic. ... The Underdog Knight still works as minor entertainment, though some of that entertainment is unintentionally derived from the odd nature of the production. ... The best thing about The Underdog Knight is probably Liu Ye's intense performance as Wang Tao.»
