Excellent movie from Hong-Kong
19 June 2012 | by wositelecSee all my reviews

It's excellent movie from Hong-Kong. In my opinion, it's very interesting, amazing and full of action production. Here's everything what likes follower of adventure movies: magic Bedouin, quick cars, escapes, fights and many other attractions. It isn't boring, but it's very, very amazing. I'm fascinated Asian culture, so that movie is sensational experience. It's something from genre Wuxia with comedy elements. How many is productions of this type? A little bit, but it isn't popular. My special fondness for this movie is understandable, because I has it on the my old VHS. I watched in Poland many times, when I was a child. It's real masterpiece!!!
