Legend Of The Mountain
Reviewed by: Jennie KermodeRead Jennie Kermode's film review of Legend Of The Mountain
Legend Of The Mountain comes to dual format DVD and Blu-ray in a beautiful print featuring new English subtitles (much better than the original ones, which King Hu hated). It's accompanied by a short documentary which does a lot to place it in context for newcomers and contains some strong material (though it's unfortunate that presenter can't pronounce wuxia), and by an interview which is similarly useful.
There's also a stills gallery here and the original theatrical trailer, which makes the film seem both more dramatic and quite a bit darker in tone than it really is. Plus there's a commemorative booklet densely packed with stills and behind the scenes pictures as well as a great deal of textual information. In sum, this is a feast for fans and will add a lot more to the experience of the film for others.Reviewed on: 18 Mar 2018
