For those who can expend their belief
5 March 2004 | by (Chambana) – See all my reviews

As one of my first ventures into old style, dubbed Kung Fu movies, this was very entertaining. I was expecting some hilariously bad movie, however I was pleasantly surprised about how well it was put together. It should show many critics that you do not need big budgets to make an entertaining film. Yet, on the flip side I guess it goes to show that to make a movie that can create a buzz, it will probably be need to have a larger budget. (Just look at _Gigli_, it was worse than this movie but had a much higher budget)

The direction is stereotypical for this genre or sub-genre of film. The comedy, of course, is on the slapstick side--but it achieves its purpose for a kung fu movie. Outside of it being a rather stereotypical attempt for this genre, I would recommend it others and have--but good luck finding a copy, but I have found it on DVD.
