GOOD ACTION FILM
1 May 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The storyline is basically about an exiled HK cop living in a fictional ex-Soviet country, and sounds like something from a Jackie Chan film. The action comes thick and fast yet theres something missing...

However the swordfight at the end is definitely the best I have ever seen and it is a shame that it's so short as it really shows the talent of Chiu Man Chuk.

The dubbing is absolutely dire, so I would recommending watching the DVD version with subtitles.
