The first excellent martial arts film in a LONG time
9 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's not a 10/10, but IMDb is reporting an average of 5.5 for whatever the hell reason so I had to ensure people see this film by skewing the score at least into the 7 to 8 range.

The cinematography is largely excellent. There is beauty in many scenes and they capture the emotion of the characters and their circumstances very well.

The action sequences started out amazing and just fizzled towards the end. That was very surprising in a bad way.

I very much enjoyed the motivation behind each characters. Although, more work could have been done in this department. As interesting as the story was there were many unanswered questions and absurdities in the plot.

I found the theme of karma and redemption refreshing and for once the violence found in such films was somewhat resolved.

It's been a very long time since I've enjoyed a kung fu period piece.

If you enjoyed the Wong-Fei-Hung films, iron monkey, crouching tiger hidden dragon, fist of legend, fong sai yuk then you should check this out.

I'm buying this on disc when it comes out and I rarely do that.
