    "Long and twisty and attention-grabbing from the outset, this Chinese western cloaks its human poignancy in intricate action choreography and occasionally gory thrills."
    Fionnuala Halligan, Screen International
  • Highest Rating
    "Wrath of Silence is a damning condemnation against the dictatorial elite and their tyrannical control on working class citizens, wrapped up in a slick, commercial package that's sure to satisfy both action and drama fans alike."
