One of the best martial arts movies
1 March 2011 | by (Iran) – See all my reviews

All of movie fans know that there are few movies every year (or maybe every decade) that you can watch more that one time. but i think it's one of them.

this is the first movie that Donnie yen has played a major role. I am a huge fan of Donnie's and have seen almost all his movies. I can say that this is one of his bests.

The plot is a simple yet functional and interesting one. action scenes are really good and well choreographed. and comedy is also good. it's very difficult to use comedy that can make people with different cultures laugh. but this movie does it. I really laughed at many scenes.

If you are an action fan, martial arts fan, Donnie yen fan or even comedy, never miss this movie.

I give it 10 out of 10 because it's one of the best movies I've seen.
