A very good introduction to kung fu styles in movies
5 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I agree completely with the Good Doctor's comments above, although I may have a different cut of this movie. The one I have--titled "Shaolin One" and released by Ground Zero has several minutes at the beginning of Jet Li essentially doing a martial arts recital. Many styles, fist, leg, is widescreen and very sharp. Then the movie itself begins, full frame and not subtitled. The voice over is done by an announcer with a Commonwealth accent and fits the action very well.

All of that aside, any version of this movie will be an excellent outline of what Hong Kong martial arts movie fans see on the screen and is highly recommended.
