Trivia

At the premier in Eindhoven, Netherlands before the movie began, a slapstick martial arts demo/play was performed by the B-Pro Stunt Team, who made Bum Fu; A Joint Venture. This happened in the cinema and was done in such a way that the actors seemed to be employees. See more »

A very nice film, just don't expect too much...
26 March 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Well, let's see, this film has some nice fight scenes, very original indeed. The art direction makes for some great images, especially the scenes where Kim Ho Kim fights with the three bad guys after he accused them of killing his brother looks much like a real Hong Kong setting. The music is also very good, it's very original and of a high quality level.

As far as the story goes, it's predictable and nothing special really... the acting is not great, and some dialog is really bad... but Jennifer the Jong is not all that bad.. They better use the fighters from this movie in a production with a better script.

I got the DVD for a few euro's, and it contains a lot of bonus material, a making of and documentary, and the short feature "Buren" which is from the same director. I think Buren is a very nice short film, which also has nice art direction, and a good performance by Esmeé de la Bretonière. All in all a rather nice DVD.
