The King of the Streets is undoubtedly a low budget effort. While it manages to show off a lot of visual trickery, King of the Streets does not have enough polish to fool viewers into thinking that it is anything other than a B-action film. However, there’s nothing wrong with this! The addition of the tricky shots and the interesting post-production coloring helps to elevate the movie into something a bit more interesting than your average B-movie, even if this particular film still falls into that category. Indeed, the movie looks fantastic. A great demonstration for these awesome visuals can be found during the flashback sequence where we see the relationship that Feng had with his father. In it, we watch as the camera seems to pan left and right while Feng and his father walk in and out of frame, apparently representing different years within their lives. The sequence seems as if it relies on the actors moving around quickly in and out of frame. It is a rather complex scene that doesn’t seem as if it was aided by CGI trickery – making it far more impressive.
