Forgive me if I'm missing something obvious, but where does Gordon Liu fit into this film? He's featured on the cover, and his name is prominently listed on the top of the cover (you can even see this on the image here on this website). The DVD I have credits him as playing Flowerless, but I agree with the IMDb credit which lists Chingmy Yau... Flowerless is a woman! Hmmmm. Please straighten this for me if possible, somebody!
This is a fantastic film, regardless. It fuses entertainment with excellent choreography, rapid and innovative before-CGI special effects, and some cool music. The love theme really gets me. Sure, the plot gets wobbly, and there's some rather low humor in parts (reminding me of Kung Fu Hustle), but overall, you have to give this film credit as a wild original. I just wonder where Gordon Liu fits in. Hmmmm. Thanks, D,
