Actually a good movie
18 September 2003 | by (Emmen, Holland) – See all my reviews

Although I don't really like most of the old school kung fu movies because of the lack of serious acrobatic skills, this is one that made me watch the whole time. It's an entertaining movie with some good action moments. 7/10.
