One of the best kung fu films of all time.
13 May 2000 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This movie is so excellent. It has the best kung fu action, and the fights are good and long. The story is actually okay, and the dialogue, while dubbed, is still good. The actors do not speak the typical stupid kung fu movies lines. Watch this.
