Overall I enjoyed it, but there are some bad points.
It was a decently enjoyable movie, i probably would have enjoyed it more if it didn't have the crouching tiger, hidden dragon tag to it (as it raised expectations)
Problems i had with it were that it was rather short, there was almost no character development, the story line was quite clichéd and the fight scenes didn't seem as fluid as the original, the musical score wasn't nearly as impressive as the original either.
I am struggling to find anything about the film that is better than average.
Overall not a bad film, just not something i will watch again, A generous 6/10
