Great Movie
24 March 2006 | by rjmarzanoSee all my reviews

'Moonlight Sword And Jade Lion' is one of my all time favorite movies.

I think I like it because the main idea is Angela goes out on her own to find a friend of her father's and find out the truth about her parents' murder.

A sub plot is this guy has one of a pair of jade lions and if he gets the other one he will become 'master of the Kung Fu world'. However it's not clear to me why.

The sound on 'Moonlight Sword' is bad and it's in the wide screen format. On my TV this only uses about 50 percent of the available screen. I don't understand why people like this format.

This was a different time in history where there was no mass communications. This guy wants to have a meeting with someone so he throws a knife at the guy's face and shouts "Get in touch with me.".

There's also two guys who I think are twins (one the good guy and one the villain) and they kill people by throwing big knives into the back of their heads just when they are going to say something important.

"You don't understand. It wasn't our fault. We were under orders from .......UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH !" To me the greatest scene is Angela gets surrounded by these gals who are carrying explosive flowers. She takes them all out with her telescopic spear.

Then she goes into the 'temple of doom' that has various hazards such as flying saw blades.
