Mystery with a few sword fights
21 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The narrator explains that Lizard Lake is a spooky place. Cut to an engagement party. Derek Yee is the future groom and Yueh Hua is the security chief. (Too many people to remember are quickly introduced.) Derek is supposed to be off on a long mission. They have a ceremony releasing lizards into a lake. Every three years a big red lizard appears and it has something to do with deaths. Derek comments this should occur when he returns. Cut to Derek arrives at an inn and receives a message on a dart. The "messenger from Hell" asks to meet him at a pavilion. He tells him his fiancée will soon die. They fight a bit and then Derek rushes back home. He encounters a red caped man carting a coffin. Inside is a woman who at first appears to be his fiancée but then turns to wood. They fight and red cape escapes with the coffin as if he is carrying it as a purse. On returning home he finds Auntie was killed though he saw her (ghost) at the front door. Derek is joined by Sun Chien, playing a constable, and they investigate at Yueh Hua's estate.

The first time I watched this movie I only got about thirty minutes into it and gave up because I could not understand what was going on and failed to care. Before trying to watch it again I read a few reviews and they all agreed the movie was hard to follow and probably didn't make sense either.

I did watch the whole movie for this review. It is mostly a mystery and I felt it just was not that interesting. The fights were few and they all seemed the same. I can only rate it below average and do not recommend it.
