4 February 2018 | by principledwarriorSee all my reviews

This movie is excellent. Now, if you are looking for a bang, bang, shoot-em up, explosion type movie, then I would suggest watching a Micheal Bay movie. But if you are a fan of Traditional Kung Fu movies then this movie will not disappoint. The cinematography of this movie is similar to House of Flying Daggers or Crouching Tiger. The fight scenes are subtle, not your over the top, jump off a building with a flying kick type action scenes. But anybody who knows real kung fu will see that this movie is bringing the real deal. I don't usually write reviews, but I felt compelled to offer a more balanced review than the one provided by the other reviewer.
