Heck, I read all the reviews and thought I really needed to see this one.
Everyone waiting for a typical Kung Fu movie isn't going to get one. If that's what you want, go home.
However, if you think Kung Fu + Fairytale + The Matrix sounds good, this is one for you.
In almost each review all I read was whiny, whingey, unimaginative dross. Lighten up folks, indulge in that wonderful whimsy called imagination and you might come to truly love and appreciate superlative brilliance for a change, instead of the usual crap that comes of movie theatres.
One thing that even the unimaginative will enjoy is the incredible beauty and the stunning cinematography.
Totally captivating. Even ape strike, which I think I actually understood!
