Excellent Kung Fu Mystery Action Movie from Top Singer.
17 December 2005 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Christian Anders one of Germany's greatest singer/songwriters of melodious smooth pop ballads , here makes his directorial debut to superb effect.

Unlike previous ignorant tasteless comments from s.kahrs this movie delivers both action, mystery, romance and suspense to keep the viewer spellbound.

Anders always uses a professional quality approach to his singing , acting and directing he finds loud garbage rock/metal/punk/hip hop drugged up noisy "music" utterly repulsive and delivers high class pop music and film thrills for millions to enjoy.

A high quality intense thrilling film.
