Trivia

The animated opening sequence actually pays homage to many famous cover arts of the Fung Wen comics which the movie Storm Warriors was based on. Examples are: Evil Wind sitting in front of his Blizzard Blade(Issue#85) Lord Godless bursting in the town gate (Issue#79), Cloud picking the one true Ulimate Sword from the countless Ultimate Swords in the Sword Sacrificial Event(Issue#46), Evil Wind facing behind with the Dragon Spine tied to his back while holding his broken Blizzard Blade(Issue#109), etc. See more »

Goofs

There was no indication that Lord Wicked has battled Lord Godless nor that they have ever met before but he was able to advise Cloud of Lord Godless' weakness. See more »

A visual masterpiece
6 October 2010 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I'm not Chinese. I'm not a Wind and Cloud comic fan-boy. Perhaps these are the reasons that I can offer an objective opinion of this film?

The first Storm Warriors (released as The Storm Riders) excited visually, taking wuxia film to an all-new level of excellence; however, it suffered from a weak, rushed plot, with references being made to characters and events non-followers just found bemusing, proving that there really is no right way to please everybody.

This sequel suffered from the same flaws, only it wasn't so much as the plot being rushed this time around as it was the characters. The problem here is that for those who aren't already fans, nothing is known - and precious little revealed - about each individual, so when it comes time that we SHOULD be caring, it's not possible. But thankfully, the Pang Brothers' beautiful direction makes it something of an over-sight. I'll come back to this in a moment.

The pacing is good for an action film, with no time wasted in getting down to the root of the story, which is basically an average episode of Dragonball Z anyway. True, action/kung fu freaks would likely pine for some more traditional choreography, but the Pang Brothers lift this film out of the chop-socky genre and into that of fine art, defeating art-house kung fu classics, The Blade, and Ashes of Time on style points by unanimous decision.

Watching the film, it's interesting to know just how big a fan of the comic the Brothers are, for each shot is so lovingly captured, at points it almost looks like paintings in motion, and with their panel-by-panel method of storytelling, comics - if well done - could almost be deemed as such. And where CGI and after-effects are indeed the sine qua non for getting their vision of the tale across on-screen, where I may have argued in the past that such techniques "kill the art of film-making", here, they AMPLIFY it, breathing enchantment into every scene, every shot, every second, leaving something of wonder to the memory come the final credits.

I could now go on about all of the awesome techniques the fighters use, and how the cinematography fully captures them - and indeed, they're well worthy of a mentioning - but instead I'll simply point out the obvious issues to address before one decides to give this a view:

  • if you're uninterested by "style over substance", you won't enjoy


this film

  • if you want an involving story, this film is not for you




  • if you want Fist of Legend-style kick arse kung fu, watch something


else

  • if, however, you want to give this film a real chance, you may just


come away a little bit richer for having done so... I know I did.
