If there were ever any filmmakers out there who have managed to squander more goodwill than have Hong Kong directing duo the Pang Brothers, then I'm not entirely sure who that might be. The Pangs started off strong and quickly built a loyal international following but over exposure and agreeing to a ridiculous pace of work that has the duo attempting to release a solo project each plus a Brothers project every year - a move that has dramatically eroded the quality of each film as they simply don't have the time to prepare properly - has whittled away their support to the point that it's been a while since anyone said, "Oooh, a new Pang Brothers film!" with genuine excitement rather than fatigue that translates more as "Oh, another one."
That said ... the duo are still one of the more visually gifted directing acts in Asia, they still manage to draw top tier cast, and every now and then they still turn out a solid title or two. Will firefighter thriller Inferno
be one of the good ones? Well, it's got a solid cast in Louis Koo and Lau Ching Wan. Take a look at the new, English subtitled trailer below and let us know what you think.
