Excellent Martial Arts Film!
18 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was shot on a shoe-string budget from what I heard. During production, the producers faced some monumental odds that included location problems, actors not showing up or bailing out of the shoot to do other projects, crew members showing up late, etc, but they persevered and got the film in the can. The post-production was even worse as the production sound turned out to be so bad that the director had to ADR the whole film, and then he faced serious problems trying to get the actors to show up and read their lines. Anyone would have quit but he did not. It took him close to two-years to edit picture and sound and he had to contend with whatever he could get. During production, the producers planned to shoot the climatic scene on the beach with a helicopter and machine guns but then one of the main characters (who will remain unnamed) did not show up. On the spot, the directors had to think quickly and rewrite the script, scrapping the helicopter shot.

So, with that in mind, it is true the first act of this film is a bit slow for the MTV generation raised on 15-second commercials, but once it shifts gear, it's a non-stop action heart-thumping thriller to the very end. The fight scenes are simply amazing! Very-well shot, very-well choreographed and brilliantly edited. I highly recommend this film to all martial arts fans. Check it out, it's worth your time!
