Great action with soul
22 October 2008 | by bobbyemSee all my reviews

Sure there where some rough spots but its a Kung fu movie after all. I would gladly choose this over any American Van Damme movie.

Great Kung Fu that almost never got boring and did not have the same lame win win win loose build up again and win curve that all the other movies have. Plus The "captain" was a great character that added to the movie a lot.

I don't see how martial arts lovers can look down on this movie, maybe I have missed something? I saw Flash Point yesterday (dubbed witch did not help) and that movie was a real kids movie compared to this one.

A very sympathetic protagonist. Great action and some funny moments.
