Now this is good

From the beginning to the end of this movie, you'll be having great great fun! Donnie Yen plays Eddie, a great marial artist and a breakdancer. Eddie wakes up with breakdancing and even puts on his clothes with breakdancing style! The adventures Eddy has in this movie are endless, escpecially with his good friend Mini(Yuen Woo Ping) who he meets while going home from school. Mini just wants to eat, and when he finally has some food, bad luck strikes him again and again. There are plenty of breakdance scenes in here with Donnie showing his amazing skills. He shows us what he's like in the disco and at the gym!Just watch the great breakdance battle with Donnie against his foe. Are you a Donnie Yen fan and didn't see this movie? Shame on you!
