I was so excited for this film to make its way to the states. Yuen Woo-ping is a master of the ideal fight movie and it's awesome to have him directing again after 15 years! His directing/fight coordinating in this film are absolutely epic! This movie has everything you want in a Wushu film. There's copious amounts of fighting with distinctly different styles including MMA, knife combat and awesome aerial stunts, and the ever popular drunken boxing, an evil master, family betrayal and of course the classic David Carradine in one of his final roles. While some may have issues with the "3 acts" or the CGI, I think that they all add to the master work of art that is True Legend.
