It doesn't make you think really nor cry, but it does provide with some good old fashion ass-kicking...
And what ass-kicking it is!
Very well orchestrated fights but of course it's not just all random fights it does have a story, and the story is fairly good although at times a little confusing possibly because of the way it was edited, it does feel a little bit like there was a scene missing here and there.
Not to the point that it takes you out of the movie or anything though.
2 likable leads in the shapes of Wu Jing and Celina Jade, who both do very well as does the rest of the cast.
Not flawless by any means, but enjoyable.
