one of the best martial arts movies I've seen in recent years, along with 2010 Reign of Assassins, have become two of my all time favorite martial arts movies. both Donnie Yen and Takeshi Kaneshiro gave a very strong performance. I'd rate this as Donnie Yen's best movie in terms of acting, he's really improved a lot in just a few years, no wonder he's becoming such a mega star in Asia nowadays, it's movies like Wu Xia definitely help his career, of course some of the credit goes to the highly highly acclaimed director Peter Chan, who knows how to get the most out of his casts. This is such a refreshing movie for the martial arts genre, I predict this film will win a lot of awards next year, either Donnie Yen or Takeshi Kaneshiro will take home the best actor title.
