Entertainment Reviews:

Box Office - 07/01/2001
"...Genuinely daring..."
Hollywood Reporter - 12/15/2000
"...TIME AND TIDE is the kind of picture that is synonymous with Hong Kong cinema....[Tsui] has always had great craftsmanship and style. His comic book sense of kinetic visuals can be mesmerizing..."
Los Angeles Times - 05/04/2001
"...TIME AND TIDE exudes Tsui Hark's trademark bravura....Visually, the film is a stunner with its impossibly mobile camera work..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 05/18/2001
"...A hyperactive showcase for Tsui Hark's ability to pile one unbelievably complex action sequence on top of another..."

Product Description:

After making two pictures in Hollywood (DOUBLE TEAM and KNOCK OFF), director Tsui Hark has returned to Hong Kong with a story about two men, two women, and two pregnancies--the theme of doubling mirrors Hark's own split identities (Hollywood vs. Hong Kong, artistic integrity vs. crass commercialism). One man, a bodyguard, dreams of escaping Hong Kong and going to what he thinks is the South American paradise of Aracuju. The other man is from Aracaju, a former member of an elite force called the Angels who has returned to Hong Kong pursued by an angry band of soldiers. The film gradually weaves together the two men's stories, culminating in one of the most extravagant action climaxes since John Woo's HARD BOILED. The short break from filmmaking that director Hark took before making this film pays off in the sheer visual flair on display; a vast panoply of POV shots and "extreme zooms" show Hark at his best. Particularly inventive is the close-quarter fight in a crowded tenement, which takes Hong Kong "wirework" in new directions. Pop singers Nicholas Tse and Wu Bai star in the film and contribute songs, including the very appropriate title song, "Makes No Sense."
