Pretty good Donnie Yen movie!

Shangai Affairs is the second movie that Donnie Yen has directed(the first was the great ''Legend of the Wolf'') This time, Donnie is a doctor and Yu Rong Guang is the leader of the axe gang. His sister his wounded and Donnie has to cure her even if he hates the guy! The story is pretty good and well acted. But when it comes to action, Donnie is the man!! There is a couple of very nice fights between him and Yu but they are pretty short but greatly choreographed(thanks to donnie!) The fights are a little bit ,stylistically, as in legend of the wolf but you see a lot more of the action in this one! But Legend of the Wolf is far better when it comes to action! Good movie however!................................................7,9/10
