  • Summary: An exciting thriller with an international cast, Time and Tide takes place in remote comers of the world and features intrigue, a breathless pace and a series of exhilarating action sequences staged with the explosive bravura that has become Tsui's signature. (Columbia Tristar)

  1. Kinetic and kooky, with a climactic shoot-out at a rail station that's daring in its ridiculousness.
  2. 80
    Extraordinarily witty (nothing new for this director) while coming off as a taunt to anyone who'd dare to follow in his wake.
  3. 75
    Essentially a hyperactive showcase for Tsui Hark's ability to pile one unbelievably complex action sequence on top of another.
  4. If only it had a plot mere humans could follow.
  5. 60
    So crammed with plot twists that it's hard to follow, simultaneously ludicrous, sappy and casually dismissive of all the things Hollywood holds dear.
  6. 60
    A woozy, disconnected piece of filmmaking about drugs, rock 'n' roll and the aftermath of sex.
  7. Reviewed by: Chris Fujiwara
    38
    A desperate, cynical self-parody.
