It begins okay but...
11 April 2002 | by chrelleSee all my reviews

The first hour is great and full of philosophical material. The relationship between the characters are wonderfully depicted and there's even a few humoristic scenes. Here the story is about betrayal, love and a beautiful friendship. But then story gets confusing and the fighting scenes which in the beginning was down to earth (as much a Hong Kong movie can be)becomes a mess of flying villains, drunken swordsmasters, unbeleviable villains generally. In this part of the movie it is all about fighting and killing.

What started out to be a fantastic ruined it totally for itself. I will give it 10/10 for the first hour and 0/10 for the last 40 minutes. So the total score for the entire movie will be 5/10
