This is not good...unfortunately
17 April 2016 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

This movie was one of those, that I've tried so hard to love. It has one hell of a cast, and I am crazy for kung fu movies. The trailer was awesome... and that was something that made me crave to see it. Unfortunately I did. Let me start by saying that, the cast is majestic. That equals to a fantastic acting from almost all the characters. The scenery is also beautiful, with bright colors, and fantastic outdoors.And even if the story, itself, was not original, was still very good to follow. But...... The "wire-fu", normally, is well accepted in this kind if movies. And, if not exaggerated, it tends to turn the movie to a faster pace, and that is very good... but, in this movie, the "wire-fu" seems exaggerated... more overwhelming...and that "kills" a little bit, in the action scenes. There's also a bit of confusion in the director's head: he seems to be lost in what genre he would like to work, if western, if epic kungfu, and that is a turn-off. After seeing almost 75% of the movie, I turned it off. There's no real pace in it.

It's to bad, because, like I've said, the cast is huge and fantastic, and the movie deserved so much more.
