Mr. Six tells of a 50-or-so-year-old street punk called “Mr. Six” who has reigned over the Beijing streets as the neighbourhood kingpin for many years. One day, he comes to know his son Xiaobo is in dispute with a well-connected young drag-racing street gang leader, Xiaofei. Mr. Six steps up to help defend him. He attempts to settle the debts of his son by relying on his old school rules and by the help of his old friends.
This film is actually good. I did myself a favor by seeing this because if you noticed, I’ve just been seeing random movies recently.
Great plot. Superb performances from the cast (probably Kris’ best acting showcase so far. Wow I can’t believe this is still about Kris. You’d understand if you saw some of his movies, too.) Anyway 4/5 I’d recommend this to all of you!
