I saw this film @ the Toronto International Film Festival. It was a pretty good martial arts film. The action styles were interesting to say the least, there were no wires used for the fighting. It added a nice change from all the action movies using wires out there these days. The story was strong throughout the whole movie.
The first bit was just explaining what was happening to all the characters (which all had wonderful performances) and it slowly became faster-paced as the movie came to a close. The end was a surprise, and a good one at that.
One last thing- the lighting in this film was very well done, I thought. The lights generally all were different colours that were on the actors, it added a nice touch.
Hopefully we will see more of Jing Wu.
