Not only is "Sap saam taai bo" a touching drama but it is the most rigorous kung fu flicks to date. I found myself laughing and crying and screaming at the same time. This movie is so powerfull it will make you want to watch it three more times. Wushu master and personal friend Chris Ko has an uncredited appearance, he fights hom kam and is later decapitated. It is really great stuff. It is amazing. It is honest and insightful and true.
