User Reviews

 
a great kung-fu movie
21 August 1999 | by johnrussSee all my reviews

An excellent martial arts movie. My favorite part is the beginning sequence where the lone wu-tang warrior fights against a squad of monks. The beginning fight scene is worth every penny it costs you to buy the movie.
