Also released on video as LORD OF WU-TANG, this surreal kung-fu fantasy best suits fans of "new school" kung-fu. It combines dazzling cinematography, insane acrobatics along with nonstop action and an overall surreal almost science-fiction feel to it. Its as if Terry Gilliam attempted a kung-fu flick. Ignore the user comments on the main page: if you simply want Jet Li and his fighting style, pick up THE ENFORCER. But if you desire something a little more over the top, that utilizes creativity and imagination over fighting styles, then pick it up. It really takes "new school" kung-fu to another level. And if you enjoy this rare sub-genre, also check out THE EAST IS RED, TWIN WARRIORS, BLACK MASK, and THE NEW LEGEND OF SHAOLIN.
