Good Shaw production with a dark side
21 January 2006 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

Some interesting concepts are contained in this absurd but dark sword film. As in other Yuen Chor films there are a number of characters to keep track of but Ti Lung holds it all together. There a good number of wild martial artists including one with exploding eyeballs! It's a very watchable film filled with fights and extraordinary weapons. Unfortunately for me the drama went a bit too unbelievable and the plot twists required Ti Lung's character to be naive at one point but brilliant and cunning at another. A little more character development might have helped.

A good film with more introspection then the typical kung-fu movie.
