Much better technically than most, some interesting plot items.
2 April 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The most notable feature of this movie is the spectacular scenery and costuming. This is one of the few Kung fu movies where the majority of the cast wears the pigtail, which made for some interesting observations as well as and interesting weapons related finale. The mother in the movie was pretty enough and young enough to be a sister and was better looking than the 'girl friend' of the plot. Lots of fight scenes but none that were spectacular in my mind.

Typical of the genre is the unusual and strange training method. Some of the expected 'flying' and some less than normal weapons work. I liked seeing some of the more 'normal' aspects of everyday life. The sets/scenery really are a cut above normal and the cinematography is really above average.
