A must-see, must-have kung fu movie
13 November 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fans of classic martial arts movie will love this one!

The movie follows a simple plot, no personal revenge or vendetta here. The hero & heroine are on a mission to deliver a certain box. And as bad luck would have it, word gets around and there are other parties interested in that box as well.

The main characters are neat, the hero's character used to work with the circus, from what I can remember. You also have cool villains in this one, a knife specialist and a sword specialist. I saw this movie ages ago so I can't recall. The stunts will leave you with your jaws on the floor. No super powers in this flick, just graceful, deadly kung fu.
