It's all about Bolo
25 January 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I got this movie from the video store simply because it had Bolo Yeung in it. And he is as big and powerful as ever. But he has toned down his cruelty level, and plays a calm introspective type.

Don't let that fool you though. There are plenty of fight scenes in this movie, and lots of big name, and simply big martial artists. Also as a big plus, someone apparently taught Cynthia Rothrock how to stage fight without missing the person by two feet, although sadly she still doesn't know how to act without being annoying.

Oh BTW toward the end of the movie there are scenes of cinematic Kung Fu. Portals through time, paralyzing touch etc. But it all works out into a fun martial arts movie. Just don't go looking for plot.
