good movie...but is it a wuxia or a superhero genre movie?, 3 March 2014
Author: bcheng93 from ny ny

surprised this movie got such a low rating, i would personally rate this a 7. if i was not a fan of this genre then it would at least still be a six. the main reason i think that people don't like this movie is because the story is very convoluted and the main leads love triangle is not explained farther...hence the convoluteness.

there are a lot of things to like about this movie, the cinematography was first rate, the locales were beautiful and enough night and rain scenes to satisfy me. the action scenes were very well done, the acting was not bad, the male leads were better then the female. i love the wuxia genre movies ever since i was a little kid growing up on shaw bros. and golden harvest movies. the wuxia here is very well done although sometimes it felt like a superhero movie( another detriment to this movie...although very well done ). action, martial arts and cgi fans will like this movie, there is a lot of eye candy. the cgi is very good, pretty much seamless interaction with the live-action. some of the locales were breathtaking...the movie is beautiful to look at even though it is not the best made movie.

for me personally, i liked it and can't wait till the second one comes out. i'm hoping that the script will be better because that was one of the main things that kept it from being really, really good. again, if you are a eye-candy movie fan, you're going to like this one.
