Professional Reviews

New York Times
"[A] work of creative imagination. Filled with strange and horrible visions, it's draws you in again and again." 04/14/2006 p.E19

Los Angeles Times
"Kekexeli is such a brutal, unforgiving place that it doesn't allow any film shot there to hold on to its innocence....The area's look is unsettling in its barren neo-lunar vastness." 04/14/2006 p.E4

Box Office
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his spectacularly-photographed, deeply moving tale makes no effort to hide its pedigree..." 07/01/2006 p.68

Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "Writer-director Lu Chan is a snappy storyteller, mounting some thrilling action sequences. And there's a keen moral ambiguity to the characters' deeds..." 10/01/2006 p.40

Sight and Sound
"[A] carefully composed melodrama, albeit one without any of the usual emotional excesses....A film that's all muscle and no flab." 10/01/2006 p.72

Chicago Sun-Times 9 of 10
"Mountain Patrol" is a Chinese film, which raises questions that are hard to answer. Is it designed to paint a positive picture of China's occupation of Tibet? Or can it be read as a parable: Protecting the antelope from poachers is the same as protecting Tibet from Chinese poaching? Because there are no ideological speeches, because the movies of the patrolmen are expressed in actions instead of words, we cannot be sure. - Roger Ebert
