The legend of Xia Jie, the queen of nightlife, produced and written by Wang Jing, although it is a follow-up to the upsurge of gangster biographies such as lame Hao, with LV Liangwei and Qin PEI as guest stars, the story spans more than 20 years, showing the colorful and tragic life of Xia Jie in her life, and the scale of eroticism and violence is great!
Yezimei, who insisted on performing passionate plays, was hired as the No. 1 female, and rubbed the hot spots of “lame hero” and “biography of Leiluo”. He directly invited “lame hero” lvliangwei, “lard boy” wumengda and “Yan Tong” qinpei, and found another way to portray a female hero in a happy scene from a female perspective, which ended with tragedy and huge ambition!
Wang Xia, a waiter in the tea restaurant, accidentally offended her little sister ah Yan, who asked her eldest brother, Alan, to come forward. Unexpectedly, Alan was attracted by Wang Xia’s beauty, easily resolved her gratitude and resentment, and began to pursue her. After the freshness period, Allen forced Wang Xia to become a “Call Girl” to make money for herself.
Wang Xia is upset, but Allen is not responsible for her bad words. In order to get rid of Allen’s control, Wang Xia tried her best to curry favor with Ke Shouliang’s “plain clothes policeman” a Guang. The latter abused his power, easily taught Allen a lesson, and then successfully married Wang Xia!
With the birth of her daughter, the relationship between Wang Xia and a Guang also appeared cracks. Her husband always seemed to be indifferent, and the cost of living was sometimes non-existent! In order to raise her daughter and achieve economic independence, Wang Xia set up a nightclub and recruited a group of “call girls” to become the queen of nightlife!
It happened that ah Cheng, the former owner of the tea restaurant, also closed the shop and opened a nightclub with Wang Xia. In the face of the harassment of small gangsters, they found lard (played by wumengda), the right-hand assistant of inspector Lei Luo, who was 500 million!
Lard successfully educated the troublemaker “mad dog Qiang”. Wang Xia immediately knelt down and recognized him as her Godfather. From then on, everyone in the Jianghu knew that sister Xia was lard’s goddaughter.
Unexpectedly, her career is going smoothly, but her husband, a Guang, who is estranged from Wang Xia, has cheated and is still fooling around with his mistress at home. Wang Xia quarreled with him and was tied up and beaten. The other side kicked her daughter. Finally, Wang Xia picked up a pair of scissors, simply castrated a Guang and ran away with her daughter in her arms!
In order to get rid of the prison, Wang Xia also came to find Godfather lard for help, so she found detective Yan Tong. At first, Yan Tong was very angry. He pretended that his subordinates worked hard without any credit, and refused to go through this muddy water.
However, Wang Xia, who knows how to be funny, hurried to give her money and even secretly asked a beautiful woman to sleep with her. With the help of Yan Tong, a Guang gave up his appeal!
In the middle, Wang Xia also taught some young ladies how to serve men, and educated a troublemaker policeman. Even the foreigner policemen who engaged in homosexuality reported that they were forced to die. Since then, in her immoral place, Wang Xia has also become the queen of nightlife, sister Xia!
Unexpectedly, the young lady’s daughter did not regret. Because her mother was the owner of the dance hall, she was insulted and laughed at by her classmates. She went to argue and fight, and was punished by the school for dropping out.
Seeing that she could not speak easily, sister Xia simply injured the senior management of the school, threatened the mother and daughter who complained, and was expelled from the school if she did not regret. After a quarrel with her mother, she also chose to run away from home.
Later, a Chao, a young gangster, harassed Wang Xia’s nightclub and fell in love with her rebellious daughter. How could Wang Xia allow her daughter to fool around with him? After she failed to persuade her daughter with the contraceptive, she began to ask the other party out for negotiation.
First move to brother Xiong, the retired “Chaozhou gang boss” played by Lu Xiong, and then simply invite the gangster drug lord lame Hao in the Jianghu. The gangster hero played by lvliangwei is so overbearing that he forces a Chao to leave Hong Kong. Otherwise, he will use Jianghu forces to kill him! A Chao ran away to Holland, but his daughter didn’t regret it. Instead, she became more estranged from her mother.
By chance, he entered the performing arts circle, became a female star, and was engaged to the son of a congressman.
Unexpectedly, a Chao made a fortune selling fans in the Netherlands and came back to recruit soldiers for revenge. He first led people to commit “all kinds of abuse” against his ex girlfriend. He also recorded videos everywhere, forcing the latter to commit suicide.
Moreover, after the establishment of the Independent Commission against corruption, Wang Xia had no two backers, lame Hao and Leiluo. She wanted to ask brother Xiong, the “leader of the Chaozhou Gang”, for help. She found that the other side had also been hurt. The old Jianghu leaders had been defeated, but the other side told her that unless she took revenge, she was typically abetting a crime!
In the climax, Wang Xia arranged several “call girls” to ambush a Chao and her men. After chenbaolian’s seduction assassination failed, Wang Xia and Acheng also suffered a tragic failure. On the contrary, a Chao stood high, cocky and complacent.
Unexpectedly, Wang Jing’s screenwriter had a brilliant stroke. The numerous “call girls” downstairs in front of him were foreshadowing. They unexpectedly came to the rescue with sticks and made a big counterattack against a Chao. A Chao was killed in a mass fight. Sister Xia took his body and fed it to the dog.
Wang Xia, covered with blood, was walking alone on the road. At this time, accompanied by a burst of sirens, the legend of sister Xia, the queen of nightlife came to an abrupt end.
Although it is a work of following the trend, the whole film is terrified of thinking carefully! Although both Xia sister and her daughter have independent rebellious spirit and have their own backers, they have finally become playthings of the patriarchal society, and the tragedy ends. After all, there are too many bad people in gangsters and nightclubs, and the risk is huge. Sister Xia has a disadvantage in her daughter’s education, which is also a disaster!
As long as they can provide amoral and immoral services, the “big brother of Chaozhou Gang” can take the lead for a “mother sang”; “Inspector Yan Tong” can also exhort the “a Guang” who has followed him for many years to give up his appeal even if he is castrated. It seems that it is too dark for both black and white to be powerful and lawless.!
A gangster can force a good man into prostitution. He and the plainclothes policeman immediately spit on the woman beside them, beating and scolding, without a bottom line; In order to vent his anger, a gangster sent people to spoil his ex girlfriend and force her to death; On the contrary, the pimp’s revenge is to kill people by bullying the few with more and controlling violence with violence. They simply ignore the legal system and the morality of the Jianghu, which is chilling!
Although the box office of “Xia Jie’s legend” is only more than 7 million in Hong Kong, it depicts the dark face of various criminals and police. Their actions seem ironic, but when you think about them, they feel more real.
This is the pinnacle of yezimei’s acting skills. Her performance is very shrewd. She is exquisite in all aspects and the Jianghu, but her mother has no choice. In addition to acting very rebellious against the Jianghu, Lizi also gave the most miserable performance of her life!
This film is also a classic gangster epic film like “O Ji triad files” and “chasing the dragon”. It is a hard work rarely launched by Wang Jing, the godfather of Hong Kong film.
