The plot is confusing, the subject is geomancy. It is another entry in the loose "Wisely" series. Visually, it is stunning.
Peter Pau, who photographed "Bride of Chucky", "The Bride With White Hair" and the awesomely beautiful "A Fishy Story" gives this exciting, Indiana Jones-style adventure a stunning surface on which to stage the busy action. And the action, to put it mildly, is mind-boggling and on the grandest of scales.
This lavish Golden Harvest production, which tanked, marked the end of big budget, non-Jackie Chan action spectacles for the company. Despite the presence of Sibelle Hu and the terrific, ultra-sexy Moon Lee, audiences steered clear of this curious pastiche of adventure, mysticism, martial arts and romance.
Siu Ming Tsui, who also plays a pivotal character, captains what must have been a very weighty ship on exotic, far-flung locations that are generously served by stunningly evocative production design and cinematography.
The fight sequences are fast, brutal and bracing, and are enriched by a pounding, memorable soundtrack and a crisp menu of sound effects.
A little discussed treasure.
