A dao shi apprentice goes to the city and begins a very dramatic life with several masters.
5 July 2015 | by adamliang41See all my reviews

The only thing that deserves a bit of praise are some of the effects and kung fu scenes, but even those are a stretch to say the least.

This movie is absolutely awful, and its awfulness increases as the so called "plot" progresses. JUST KIDDING, there is no plot, even a child can write such a horrendous story. The relations between characters are almost non existing. The movie does not follow the audience's pace at all, for some times the pace is so off that you feel completely cheated to even pay for this movie. Although advertised as a comedy, the only funny thing was how bad the movie is. Although I cannot give examples, imagine a lower school level story line with sci fi effects made by Michael Bay, add in some really weird elements of homosexuality, adultery, and kungfu and tadaaaaa.

Do not watch, as the saying goes "if people tell you something looks and smells like poop so many times, you seriously don't need to eat it", so DO NOT WATCH IT.
