Many of the bad guys had weird hairstyles to hide their head padding. During the slow motion scenes, you can seen them angle their head downwards to catch elbows on the tops of their heads, presumably where the padding was thickest. See more »

The storyline is predictable, but the visual and the fights makes up for it. I understand why people compare the lead actor with Jet Li. They both have that presence on screen, the amazing flexibility and fighting sequences. Outstanding acrobatic movements when running from the bad guys in the street and it was good to see the shots from different angles.
It reminds me of some Jet Li's better fighting sequences before he took to the wires. This is the kind of martial arts film that makes me smile and cheer.
