First off, I am a huge Donnie Yen fan since the early 80's and I have watched all of his movies both good and bad. And this movie ranks as one of his worst.
This is a Donnie Yen movie and what do people watch Donnie Yen movies for? It's for his action and well choreographed fight scenes, well, this movie had very little of it. Maybe because it's more of a prologue of what is to come. The movie ends with a cliffhanger setting up a sequel so I hope the sequel will at least provide us fans with some awesome action. The story was laughable because it makes no sense and it tries to be a comedy but ends up being awkward. It's supposedly a remake of a 1989 movie nameed the Iceman Cometh but there is nothing that resembles that movie except that the main character and villains were frozen and came back to life during the present. Do yourself a favor and watch the 1989 movie, that was a classic.
