Excellent martial-arts movie.
6 November 2002 | by (Örebro, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best movies in the "Once upon a time in China" series. Funny once in a while with its goofy Chinese humour and filled with fast fightingsequences that are beyond us "normal" people. :) The synchronized sound is, as usual not the best, but it does the trick..
