"Moonlight Sword & Jade Lion" tells us about a young fighting lady, played by Angela Mao, who is on the search for an old master. Nobody has seen him for months, it appears, so she keeps asking people "have you seen him?" and sometimes she fights them if she doesn't like the reply. Now, the movie has a couple of memorable moments, such as the hilarious fight against roughly 20 enemies at once who are holding flowers (sic!) which can shoot flames or darts. That doesn't help to disguise the fact the story isn't exactly Sherlock Holmes. The heroine spends a month wandering around looking for clues, doesn't find anything important, and most characters just seem to be introduced to confuse her and the audience a bit. And if they do intend to tell her anything, they suddenly have a knife in their back. It was a relief to see in the other reviews that nobody else understood what the Jade Lion was for, either. So in the end, "Moonlight Sword & Jade Lion" is worth watching only for fans of Angela Mao who bravely carries on despite the lack of story progress.
