Did You Know?


Shaofeng Feng describes his acting style as a combination of the "wusheng," the marital-art character , in Peking opera and "Sakuraki Hanamichi" in the classic Japanese comic Slam Dunk, under which he and director Hark Tsui try to presents his role Yuchi Zhenjin's comedic tone through an action-driven personality as well as the discontinuous change of mood.

User Reviews

Part 3 aus good as Part 1 and 2
21 October 2018 | by BeGermanSee all my reviews

Beside Chinese Ghost Stories and Wu Ji - originally chines version - the Detective Dee Trilogie are my favourite Chinese fantasy movies. Maybe some people have a problem if the Asian story telling - not always the classic western act driven - or with the stayle of acting and homie, but that is exactly the charming side of that movies. They a well done craft work and released with a wonderful style of love to the story. A fresh experience "out side of the box". I can't wait to see part 4 whenever they will make a bother one. OhI forgot, you can see also again that are good actresses and actors, storyteller and director, movie artist behind and in front of the camera. are exaist without an English native language.
