This is probably my all time favorite martial arts movie.
This is probably my all time favorite martial arts movie. The artistry of the actors in performing their combat sequences is so smooth and flowing, and yet they make it look almost effortless. The costumes are, in a word, incredible. The dubbing lacks emotion, but the plot to the movie has enough twists to keep it interesting in between fight scenes. There are a few laughs along the way, and the music is just classic for a film like this. If you're into old kung fu movies, THIS is as good as it gets, in my opinion.
