  Not so good, but worth watching.

I've bought a few Donnie Yen films lately, and this is my least favorite. It kinda reminds me of Kung Fu Hustle because of the over the top fighting, which I dont mind. but the film is based upon a comic book so the film turns very cartoonish towards the end. So the film was entertaining but the ending kinda ruined it for me.
Good acting, good fights, worth watching. But Director Wilson Yip and actor Donnie Yen's Killzone aka SPL and Flashpoint is much better. The Dvd release is good tho', 2 disc with lots of extras. 6/10.

  Fun Fighter

Another Hong Kong movie that uses CGI and wire work, this one is most easily described as a more serious 'Kung Fu Hustle'. In fact, this is probably the best martial arts film to come out since 'Hero'; although that's more of a reflection on the quality of the genre than this film.

  Good Martial arts fun that doesn't take itself too seriously

I had been waiting to see this film for quite a while, and when I saw that it was in stock for the price of just £5.99 I had to snap it up, and im glad I did.

The fighting is solid, obviously Yen is the best at this but both Yue and Tse give great performances (Particularly Yue as Turbo, he was my fave) which was relieving to see, particularly in a film that's main focus is the fights.

The story is ok, nothing spectacular but more than enough to keep you interested during the course of the film, I think if the film had been any longerthen I would have started to lose interest, but as it is the film flows nicely.

Personally I don't think you can go wrong with this film at the price it's at, it's a solid martial arts action flick with some pretty impressive fights, I've seen tons of martial art films and this ranks among my favourites, not because it's a groundbreaking film of the martial arts genre, but because it's a fun fighter film that you can just lose yourself in and enjoy fully.

4/5

Recommended! (Just as long as your not expecting the next 'big thing')

  Not the greatest film, but definately not the worst

First and foremost you must keep in mind this is an adaptation of what is a hugely popular comic book in china, so some of the scenes are a bit far fetched. Not an epic like 'Hero' or 'Fearless' but If you keep this in mind you will enjoy this movie.

  Good but could have been a little better.

The fight scenes in this superhero movie are alot better than i expected since i'm not a huge fan of Donnie Yen but also i have nothing against him. The fights are fun but the storyline is a little weak in my opinion. Yen does a good directing job, whilst Nicholas Tse gives a great performance. My favourite however is the guy with the Nunchaku, good to see that weapon getting used prominently in a movie again.

  Another Quality Movie in My Collection

Brought this dvd without knowing what it was about! ive recently began to buy a lot of asian/martial art movies, and if they keep coming as good as this then im gonna be blown away forever! I liked the story line, the rise from almost certain death to honor and revenge loved ones! the fight scenes are AWESOME. My opinion... BUY IT.

  Great Fighting!

this film has amazing fight scenes and is a must for anyone who is a fan of martial art films. The only bad thing being the story line but the fighting makes up for it.

  BY FAR NOT DONNIE YENS BEST!!!!

| | See all jcsng26's reviews (6)

Donnie Yen is a great martia artists he has made many fantastic films. this is not one of them. The story line is absolutely rubbish, (then again you have to consider it is adapted from a comic so certain elements will only be understood by people who read the comic!). The Fighting however is quite good but by far not Donnies best. there is heavy use of special effects and far too much time spent by the actors looking pretty and having the wind blownin their hair! i have all of donnie yens films(i get them from hong kong) if you want to see a gd(possibly the best) donnie yen film buy Sha Po Lang/kill zone which also has Sammo hung in way way better and a much better example of Donnies skills and film making ability!!!!!! (Also this film is not the original length hk version it is cut by about 13 minutes)

An excellent Kung-Fu film - directed by Wilson Yip - with a fantastic array of martial arts all of which are choreographed by Donnie Yen

Basically the story consists of two brothers, Dragon (Donnie Yen) and Tiger (Nicholas Tse), who are split apart when they are young. One leads a good path and one leads a path dictated by a powerful gang. The brothers love for one another is out of sync as Tiger battles to win over the right to be Dragon's brother. Eventually there comes a time where Dragon and Tiger along with Turbo (Shawn Yue), an effective nunchuka user, must fight together against the destructive power of enemy Lousha.

The film itself has some very competent filming that boasts real panache when combined with the vigorous fighting scenes.

An excellent buy for any fan of Asian Cinema and the Martial Arts genre.
