Solid kung fu entertainment!
6 January 2019 | by stellan-sjolinSee all my reviews

Should you watch this movie? If you like kung fu movies, definitely! The movie has a great deal of the classic kung fu spirit from 60-70-80's movies, you know what to expect, lots of fast paced action, some humor, ultra evil bad guy with a manic laugh and so on. It might loose a star or two because there is a few to many characters, of which a few lack purpose. This sometimes just fills space in the movie, and make the story less straightforward. I had quite bad subtitles as well, this made it worse for me.

But overall? If you like classic kung fu, watch it!
