Filmed on location in Taiwan. During the filming of entry of the final showdown, thousands of locals lined up to cheer the entry of Chow Yun-fat. The crowd got so big that they blocked traffic from going through that area. See more »
This film is so inferior to the original that I took the video out the back of my house and burned it, lest on returning it someone else bought it and suffered as I did.
Watch the original, which is brilliant, avoid this like the plague!
Chow Yun Fat is an excellent actor and is totally wasted in this tripe. All of the charm, humour and cool action is missing completely. The whole mystic aspects totally ruin the movie and in many scenes I can see the wires.
Then finally, and relentlessly, the film comes to the climax, which is nothing compared to the originals twist.
Please, watch GOG1 and avoid this utter rubbish.
