Storyline

After a long absence, a master swordsman of royal blood, Yeh Cool-son, returns to the emperor's palace to challenge Snow, a reclusive master, to a dual on new year's eve. In the days before the dual, strange things happen in the palace, seen mostly through the eyes of Dragon 9, a leader of the guard who alternates between serious pursuit of duty and joking. His girlfriend, Jade, is a prostitute; Princess Phoenix, the emperor's sister, has been his friend since childhood. There are murders in the palace, and evidence points to Snow, whom Dragon 9 believes is above suspicion. As the princess is attracted to Yeh and as the duel approaches, will Dragon 9 figure out what is going on? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Early in the movie, Dragon 9 orders red wine, however when it arrives, he pours a colorless liquid from the jug. (It wasn't rice wine, Nick Cheung needed to be sober for subsequent scenes.) See more »

Conflicted somewhere between Great and Good
5 January 2003 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

WARNING: Do not, under any circumstances, read the description on the back of the DVD. All it tells is the ending.

The story is about one of the two greatest fighters in the world challenging the other to a formal fight on the roof or the forbidden city. This subtle love story goes through many comedic events before reaching the battle near the end of the movie. The fights are like "Crouching Tiger" with more money for unrealistic but unbelievably cool special effects.

Nick Cheung delivers another excellent comedic performance, but he leaves the viewer wondering how good a fighter he is. In the movie he has a few fights but none are against the "Two greatest fighters in the world" and yet his character seems to fight better than the both of them.

The movie becomes a "Chick flick" at points, but both genders can appreciate one part or another. Overall, I recommend this movie to anyone who has seen Chinese comedies before.
