Trivia

The main character's name is "LANG" which is a play on words for "Liu Kang" - the Mortal Kombat character. Both Lang and Liu Kang are "chosen" heroes. This is possibly a Mortal Kombat reference as Ho Sung Pak was very well known for his role of Liu Kang in the first two Mortal Kombat video games. See more »

Aimless plot, bad choreography, no fantasy
29 January 2011 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

To make it short and quick: The movie boring, the fighting is merely more about screaming like Bruce lee than real fighting action. The actors do have a lots of good moves, but the choreography is just bad. There is a fight scene in which a oil lantern is in front of the action and you cannot see the whole fight scene, because it covers like 1 /3 of the picture.

I don't know why this is called a fantasy movie, its more like a ninja movie with some bad special effects. It could also be some gangster action movie with some ninjas. Don't pay for this movie, you'll regret it.
