[7.25/10] Cliff Walkers (2021)

Cliff Walkers (2021)

Quick Review: Slickly-crafted, yet often incoherent, "Cliff Walkers" is a bit hard to get invested into, due to its intricate plotting and big amount of characters involved, but Yimou's melodramatic and emotional, albeit violent and action-charged vintage espionage thriller strikes with some stylishly exquisite imagery of wintery 1930s Manchukuo, with the muted, somber color palette and the 'cold' beauty of the ceaselessly snowing scenery adding a chilling vibe to the twisty cat-n-mouse affair.
