Impressive fight scenes highlight usual low-budget nonsense
15 December 2000 | by (Stockton, California) – See all my reviews

You know, Donnie Yen has made a number of low-budget films during his career. In an interview he said that he made them only because he needed to pay the bills...otherwise he hated them. Crystal Hunt is one of those movies that I believe he hated. Having said that, the movie is not all that bad.

The plot is some nonsensical mishmash about a magic crystal and the various parties that are looking for it. There are a lot of characters to keep track of. Ultimately the plot really doesn't matter...the fight scenes do.

There is a good number of fight scenes in this movie. Like many of Donnie's films in the 1990s, the fight scenes are often undercranked. However, for the most part, it isn't too bad. Donnie is in good form. His wushu/kickboxing is always great to watch. Sibelle Hu, Carrie Ng, and Fujimi Nadeki get to cut loose and bust out some cool moves. Ken Lo (of Drunken Master II fame) even has one decent fight scene. Also, I have to rate this movie as John Salvitti's best martial arts performance. He really outshines his work from ITLOD 4 and Tiger Cage 2. Micheal Woods does alright too. The end is entertaining, in not too brutal.

Overall a pretty good action film for fans of the genre.
