Only fight scene worth seeing
10 April 2007 | by donniedragonSee all my reviews

I'm a pure martial arts movie (and Donnie Yen) fan and certainly have to admit I too, long anticipated the fight between Donnie and Jackie (since Shanghai Noon sequel Shanghai Knights). As my heading goes, that is the only reason i bought the DVD to collect. Jackie's opening appearance was kinda makes you say "What the xxxx…??!" However, once again under Donnie's coaching, Twins did an excellent performance in their martial arts action sequences (and they surely grew prettier as well), while Jaychee looked real wimpy in the movie that seriously made me wanna swear and yell "did somebody mentioned that this kid is Jackie's son?" Real disappointment for a debut. Perhaps that's supposed to be deliberate cos he wanted to prove to the world that he does not wish to follow his father's footsteps as an action star? Another character worth mentioning is Chan Pak Lum in his role as Blockhead, appeared funny and entertaining.
