Return to Dragon Inn with Flying Swords at Dragon Gate
24 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Famed Asian director Tsui Hark known for the Once Upon Time China series and his most recent Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame returns with an all-new remake/reimagining of the Dragon Inn series with Flying Swords of Dragon Gate. This film not only features Hark bringing back the famed wuxia style, superstar Jet Li and is the first wuxia film shot entirely in 3D.

Flying Sword is set three years after Dragon Inn and the original owner Jade has disappeared and in her place a band of marauders disguised as citizens in hopes to find a fabled lost city. This was a great entry into this genre of martial arts filmmaking. The sets and visuals are as epic as every taking you into the world just like those that came before it. The story is fairly straight forward and not as nearly convoluted as most in this genre, but does a have a few moments here and there that veer off on an unstable path, but return with little confusion. The cast all do a great job bringing their characters to life and delivering the needed action to make this film work. Much like the original Dragon Inn films in 1992 this hearkens back to the time of over the top wild and crazy action that works on every level. This film sports some of the best martial arts action of this genre in sometime. Somewhere it seemed like they forgot how much fun and great these films were, but thankfully Hark is bringing it back. While not getting the chance to witness the 3D in action, it is clear from the way this movie is shot that they took full advantage of it. It easily enhanced the 2D version making it more intriguing and fun while never being distracting.

For all those bummed about Jet Li's minimal return in Expendables 2, this is a welcomed replacement to get your Li fix. He is in top form reminding everyone where he came from and why we love him so much. As if this great film wasn't enough as is, there is even a cameo by the legendary martial arts icon Gordon Liu that will make old school fans of this genre smile. If you like Li or these old school style martial arts films, you have to check this film out, you will not be disappointed.
