Underrated star and film
11 August 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I've commented before on IMDb that I can't understand why Yuen Biao is so underrated compared to Jackie Chan and Jet Li. This film was Yuen's directorial debut and combines stunning shots of Tibet with the 'fish out of water' theme that seems to suit him s well, for instance in The Iceman Cometh. In fact the plot of this film is very similar with modern Hong Kong providing again the main comic misunderstandings. Michelle Reis replaces Maggie Cheung but Yuen Wah plays the evil sorcerer and their fights together are as good as ever. Nina Li Chi (Jet Li's ex) adds spice with some great acting and fighting skills. Special mention should also go to the late and great Roy Chiao. The esoteric Buddhism elements may put some people off and like a lot of HK films their is too much plot but this is a different approach to an action film and for me at least works really well.
