However I am lucky enough to have worked on it as senior colourist and have seen the REAL version. Unfortunately as it is currently banned no one will see it for a long time. That doesn't make me biased though, if I thought it sucked I would say so!
Nobody should watch the hideous torrents that are floating around on the internet. For starters its not the approved final edit nor has the post production been completed.
What you are all watching and reviewing is in fact a WIP copy and should be viewed as such. Remember that stupid Wolverine torrent from a few years back that was only around 60% complete? Same kinda thing.
The fight scenes for me are excellent, i watch a lot of action films and todays propensity for fast cuts and multiple angles is nothing more than a clever attempt to hide the fact that there is no real fighting being done.
The fight scenes in this movie are real and extremely well choreographed for the most part. Existing as single continuous shots (like the fighting in the apt) there is also none of the fantasy element that a lot of martial arts films have no crazy floating kicks or heavy vfx (not that they are bad things, they are just not in this film). You have to be really tight in order to make this style work and they have totally pulled it off.
On top of this the cinematography is outstanding and the directors original film is great.
Its raw and real and really really good.
Please be patient and hope that one day you will see the film the the director intended for the audience. It'll be worth the wait!
