about the film:

Personally when I first saw this film I didn't really bother that much about it. I though "ahh..sen this so many times before" but the second time I watched it.. I began to understand that this is actually a very beautiful film. the story itself isn't anything new but still gives a good purpose and meaning to the film, the fighting is of the old school, fun to watch and nicely made, locations are beautiful shot etc. so in all this film is actually worth looking up. If you like the old martials arts stylish films I would recommend to look this one up.

I give it a 7/10
