Rocky type film
16 October 2004 | by goodmenSee all my reviews

This is like a Rocky clone.

What i like: the film character is very realistic and the situation is on par with the real world and not the fake Hollywood crap. For one thing, the main character is very influence by western and not that kind of hero we see. He like an ordinary person with a dream of getting a car, cellphone etc. Some Tsui Hark filming which is solely missing since he's stop acting. The fighting was awesome and entertaining and very realistic too.

What i hate: The acting was pretty bad, the over the top fighting, they should make it more like Rocky camera angle and not keep moving around. The cantonese dubbing was pretty horrible. Also the acting (which i heard they are real life xanda fighter and not actors) was pretty bad, but i can't blame them. The film look low budget, has a Tsui Hark film it should look something glamorous and not like those Fruit Chan film (not that his movie are boring, in fact i love Fruit Chan movie).

Of course Rocky was a much better film, but this movie was at least not boring.
