When I saw the rating this movie received here, I was disappointed. Admitted, there's no plot worth talking about, but technically, this movie just swept me off my feet. The editing, the use of music and the camera-work are simply incredible. Every frame fits perfectly. Also, the humorous approach this movie takes to its fight scenes is something out of the ordinary. Two men fighting on a rooftop, they go into a clinch, no-one seems to be able to wrestle the other one down, so they stumble around like this, and just when you think, "this looks almost like a dance", presto, the music changes to a waltz. In the next shot, we see the two men hitting each other with things lying around, but we only see their shadows, just like in the Indonesian shadow puppet theater. This movie challenges its viewer to break up with the habitual way of perceiving action in film, maybe some folks don't like that.
As Sean Choi put it in his comment: All style, no substance? yes, but what style!
