Colorful action adventure, yet not without problems
8 December 2006 | by unbrokenmetalSee all my reviews

The beginning is promising. A young boy betrays his family who hides a refugee and tells the pursuer (Lo Lieh) where the hiding-place is - just because he wants a valuable telescope for reward. His father decides to kill the boy in order to restore the honor of the family. This tragic occurrence leads us into a colorful action adventure in extraordinarily beautiful studio sets which unfortunately is not free from problems. Too many characters are introduced which creates some confusion regarding what the conspiracy is all about and takes away attention from the emperor Chien Lung (Pai Piao). The movie slows down too often; a few scenes like the discussion about how the meal for the emperor should be cooked, or a musical competition between girls at the court are not necessary. Still I recommend to watch the movie till the end, because the creative fights against a bunch of warriors in red cloaks are fun - plus Ti Lung makes a great hero!
