Hong Kong cinema giants Derek Yee and Tsui Hark join forces in this 3D martial arts epic, about an elite swordsman who is haunted by his skill, and a challenger who aims to take his place at all costs.
Well Go USA brings us a film written and produced by Tsui Hark, and directed by Yuen Woo Ping. A group of misfit fighters with supernatural abilities battles an ancient evil bent on destroying mankind. They are the only ones who can protect us. Yuen Woo (Wo) Ping is best known for being the action director/choreographer of such films as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, The Matrix trilogy, and Tarantino's Kill Bill. This Wuxia film, a genre of Chinese fiction brimming with martial arts action and spellbinding visuals, was released December 15.
Yes, it's mostly a fantasy CGI green screen wire rope flying/jumping sequence after sequence film which can get really tiresome because theses movies have been done so many times, but I thought they did a quality job on all those elements including a bit of historical Chinese myth as plot backdrop. The three eyed toothy fish was hilarious. Acting was good. Entertaining as any to be found in this Chinese genre.
