During the fight between K-29 and the leader of the Violence Sect, at one point there is a close-up of the Violence Sect's head being slammed into what is supposed to be a stone wall, but the wall flexes and gives way revealing that it's a flimsy façade rather than a solid wall. See more »
I will keep this short, this film was great!A unique concept and simple story carry this movie from point A to point B, while setting up plenty of fights and action! If you like martial arts movies, i'm sure you'll enjoy this.The movie has a darker tone to it, and characters are introduced appropriately. The choreography was very good for the most part, feeling gritty and with impact. I would've liked to see slightly longer shots in some of fight editing, but still, its a lot better than most of the stuff out there. The movie itself was shot beautifully. Certain scenes and setting (Shaolin / Hades) just look deep, and vivid. My verdict, if your into martial arts films, check it out!
