Action, stunts, comedy and women: one of the best Easters
"Xia ri fu xing" was the first movie by Sammo Hung, and I loved it. The stunts and the action is great and the story isn't stupid. The decrees are fun. Sammo Hung, Jackie Chan and the rest of the actors played super. You don't see very much blood, but they hit and kick and hit and kick...
This movie shows, that you can film super stunts, without special-effects, like in "The Matrix".
