This movie goes to eleven!!!
15 November 2014 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I finally had the pleasure to watch this masterpiece last night. It is the movie I always wanted to make, to see, to watch.

It is one of these many Chinese movies Quentin Tarantino must have watched and always strived to recreate their amazingness! But he only came close; never was able to 100 % capture the magic.

This movie has it all: Amazing Kung Fu - or to be more precise - Wuxia action, great dubbing with extremely serious lines like: "You're the only one, 'til now, who could hurt me." The cinematography is great, real landscapes, professional "wire-fu" stunts, perfect sound- editing, magic hand grenades, drama... Simply put: The perfect movie.

But what makes it go to eleven on a rating system from one to ten is the unique combination of Chinese action and actors with American dubbing and western soundtracks.

There's music from Ennio Morricone and Jean Michelle Jarre in this one! Many years, before Tarantino came along and did the same thing (combining eastern and western)

It's so bad, it's good. And it's so good in it's bad-good way that it's perfect.

When movies are about entertainment, this one wins the universe!

There's not enough motion picture awards in all of existence to praise Xia gu rou qing chi xi zin enough.

Wow, just wow.

This movie is like one of these things you were looking for since the day you were born - but did not know; so instead you tried to find movie-happiness in the IMDb Top 250 or wherever.

I at least did. Until last night... when I finally found it.

THAT is how good this movie is.
