Miracle Fighters is another Yuen woo-Ping action movie, only this time, it is not only based on kung-fu but also on magic, sorcerers and a lot of humour. There are fight sequences, (but most of the action involves magic tricks (which are great)! The special effects are, surprisingly, awesome!! The end sequence, where all the sorcerers compete in a competition, is great! The story is good but standard but it is overall a good movie!..8/10
