Quotes

Master Yang: You must meditate.
'Tiger' Chen Lin Hu: Why?
Master Yang: To clear your mind, guide your Chi and gain control.
'Tiger' Chen Lin Hu: I have control.
Master Yang: No, you have power not control.
'Tiger' Chen Lin Hu: Power is control.
Master Yang: That is an illusion.
'Tiger' Chen Lin Hu: It is not an illusion... it's reality. I live in it, you don't. What I learn here I can't use out there.
Master Yang: How can you use what you have not yet learned? Only when you've dispelled these illusions, will you find your way again.

Don't know about you, But this was awesome!
9 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a great movie, I am not sure what the others are whining about saying it is the worst movie in Hollywood. Clearly you do not know what bad movies are. This was a great flick! If you enjoy Ip Man or you are one of those guys who watches Chinese movies with English subtitles. You will enjoy this movie. There a clear progressiveness to the movie, nothing too cheesy or corny. Actions scenes were great! Decent story line. The main actor was good for someone who I have not seen before. Overall good flick to watch at home. Do not be discouraged to watch this movie because some "idiot" wrote that it was the worst movie. I would recommend this movie if you like Donnie Yen or Jet li.
