Beauty and violence in a rainy day popcorn film
28 August 2006 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Better than average martial arts film concerning the Emperor versus the Shaolin monks. The Emperor fears the monks will destroy his power and burns their temple in the hopes of wiping out their order. Of course it doesn't work and only manges to get them angrier.

Somehow connected to earlier films this is a good little film that works fine on its own terms. Its packed with action and drama and never really stops moving for a second. I was just going to take a quick look at the disc to make sure it worked and the next thing I knew I was 25 minutes in. This is a rainy day popcorn film. Best of all is the beauty of the fights which wonderfully link the violence with ballet.

This is one to see if you run across it.
