A decent romantic kung fu movie with bad intro and occasionally annoying sounds
13 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

At the intro it drags a bit too long introducing a bit too many characters, being a little confusing at times. The number of characters showcased is rather more than in the 5 Deadly Venoms movie, while also being more boring. Overall it's a romantic movie with some decent kung fu in it and a couple of teachings. A lot of young people that are in schools think that memorizing useless crap won't do them any good, but that's wrong: it trains your memory. Without giving a spoiler, this movie will show a perfect example of that. It's worth about a 7 at most, but I gave it an 8 just to balance. There where some parts where the sound was just damn terrible, when of the characters kept playing some stupid "song" crap for probably 5 minutes, which messed up with my ears, that was a really bad decision but I think might have heard worse...
