Great cast in an almost great movie
19 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Meng Fei returns to his role as Fong Sai Yuk and once again the government is after him. Meng Fei is the main reason this movie is so good. He has a very likable personality and he shows once again to be the king of fan fighting. Whether his opponent is unarmed or has a huge spear, Meng Fei always uses his fan. Basically the story has Chang Yi trying to kill Fong Sai Yuk by setting up a death match on top of large wooden poles. Yasuaki Kurata plays Meng Fei's opponent and does a great job. Lau Kar Wing has a part in the movie as someone who is impersonating Fong Sai Yuk. The fight between Lau Kar Wing and Meng Fei is the highlight of the movie for me. Then you have Dorian Tan who plays a teacher figure and while he doesn't get to fight much, he gives a great acting performance. In fact, I think this is the first time I have ever said that Dorian Tan gave a great acting performance. He really shines in his small role. The only problem I have with this movie is that the final fight with Chang Yi is too short and feels like an exhibition. Everything else is great.

The Crash Cinema DVD is full screen and the picture is very faded. It's bad, but it's watchable.
