This film had me
Put off from the start given the silly, over the top, fight choreography but stay with it - if you like a film that has action this has it but moreso it also has a deeper, thoughtful, nature to it with some interesting dialogue and certainly well thought out motivation with the lead characters. I do not generally go for subtitled films that have a lot of action to them but this one pulled me in after I got over the initial style the Director went for. Another good subtitled film for those who enjoy clever fight scenes and a thinking Hero.
A decent mix of a grounded plot and Martial Arts action. Donnie Yen is yet again amazing in this film.
Brilliant fight scenes and one heck of a movie based on a non fictional character of Chinese history
