Really neat idea, brother vs brother martial arts movie. Story was good, fighting was bad, movie was cheesy. I say C
1 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"We crushed the 10 major martial arts schools, no one will dare oppose us now." Years after his family is killed Zhang (Tse) finally finds who he has been looking for, the murderer. The only problem is that it is his brother who he must defeat in order to get to him. Not being a huge fan of martial arts type movies I did think that this one looked good in the preview. What I found was a very low budget movie that was not that enjoyable. I will say that of the ones that I have seen have Jet Li and Jackie Chan in them, and the quality of action between them and the lesser known actors is huge. The choreography is very poor, and looks just short of what a school play would be like. The movie did have some pretty cheesy parts but the story was good. The only problem is that the bad action takes away from the story, it may have been better if the left the fighting out actually. Also, I don't usually comment on the technical aspects of the DVD, like camera work etc... but the dubbing (I watched the original Chinese version) was so bad that the mouths didn't match the sounds. I can understand if they are off in the English dubbing, but not the original. It was almost so bad that you found yourself thinking about that instead of the movie. I don't know if it says more about the sound or the movie itself. Overall, maybe hardcore martial arts fans will like this. I did not. I say C.

Would I watch again? - No I won't *Also try - Warrior's Way & Fearless
