Early in the movie, Wong Tai comments about how it takes five days to get to the temple, and five days to get back home (a total of 10 days). Yet later in the movie after one of the fights, he somehow manages to get to the temple and back home in less than three days. See more »

Traditional Fare
22 May 2001 | by (Vestal, NY, USA) – See all my reviews

Even though Jackie Chan is not in the movie, it is quite enjoyable. It is a very traditional chop sokey film. It's a treat for people who enjoy the broad humor and lack of special effects used in old school kung fu films. In other words, "Their Kung Fu is very good!" Many of the characters (especially the two old male lead fighters) are frequently seen in better known films. This is just a notch below "Twin Dragons" and "The Legend". The dubbing is in Cockney English, a sure sign this is old style and not a new film. There is some gratuitous nudity, which comes across and gratuitous silliness. I recommend it strongly for people who like good fighting, enjoy the cultural traditions of China and enjoy the robust humor typical of this genre. Thumbs up!
