Surprises keep showing up!!!
22 October 2012 | by Yichieh ChenSee all my reviews

Honestly, in the beginning I didn't think highly of this movie because of its seemingly funny horn born with Yang Luchen

and the war scene the director presented. They made me laugh and wonder if it was a comedy or heroic film @@

Then there arrived the surprises!Combining the elements of video games, comics, I suddenly came to and keep my eyes

open afterwards.

Kept in suspense as how the story lines would go, I stayed focused and curiosity aroused.

Eager to know what would happen next, then the film suddenly ended.

Though some plots are not clear and coherent enough, the movie as a whole is innovative.

Hence I would recommend it to those who wanna something new or know more about kung-fu!
