When Leong Kit throws his ball and Jen Moo attachs his explosive charge, he has to bend back to do the job, since the ball bounces back low. But Leong Kit catches it at chest level, whereas - judging by the angle the ball was returning - the ball should be headed for his groin. See more »

A must have for all genre fans.........
10 December 2005 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This is a great retread of the old and use Chinese vs Japanese story lines with incredible Action choerography and skill from the leads. I had never seen Hiroyuki Sanada in a film except The last samurai (he was the one who kept beating up tom cruise), and was very very impressed with his flexibility and grace, he was genuinely believable as a ninja. Conan lee did fine but the real star is Corey Yuen or Yuen Kwai, his masterful direction especially in the action was incredible and was definitely a showcase for his talent. Overall a great film and incredible action featuring a great supporting role from Hwang Jang lee.
