In this pulse-pounding action thriller, a ruthless killer is methodically hunting down former martial arts masters. An imprisoned kung fu expert (Donnie Yen) offers to help police with their investigating and catch the killer in exchange for his release.~Daniel Gelb
Best Chinese film I ever watched, best action, best acting, not a second the screenplay feel you boaring. You have to watch it. It's a story of a Kung fu killer who kill other number one people - fighter boxer, kick fighting specialist.
While it does start off a little slow and takes a little while to really get going, this is a great film. While it doesnt stand with the best that Donnie Yen has ever done, this isnt really about him to be honest. The real star of this movie is the actor who plays the villain. He really steals the show and is worth watching.
I was waiting for this movie to hit stateside for a while and it didn't disappoint. It goes under different title depending what market your in but the fight scenes don't disappoint. Movie revolves around one man's quest to be the best and around another man's quest to redeem himself. With it being a martial arts action it also is a cat and mouse suspense movie as well.
The description on the site is wrong!! No English!
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
so I have yet to actually open and watch this but I ordered it on the website because on the website it says that it has an English dubbed version on it, however the information on the back of the case disagrees it has English subbing but not English dubbing, while the site says that there is English audio the only English audio is in the special features oh, there is no English audio for the actual movie oh, and that is exactly the version that I was trying to find the one that actually has the English dubbing so I will likely be returning this if they actually carry one.the movie itself is phenomenal it's just trying to find the version that's hard because people don't know how to accurately post a description on their website clearly. Best buy needs to update this description so that people know that there is not an English audio on this movie.
I own and have watched a fair amount of Donnie Yen movies, and this one ranks somewhere in the middle in terms of overall quality. The fighting and action scenes are superb, but the story flow seemed disjointed at times. Its a great homage to past genre action stars however, and is definitely worth a watch.
Good story with awesome action! Donnie Yen does another great job choreographing the fight sequences, his attention to detail is top notch! Highly recommend this to fans of Donnie Yen or martial arts fanatics.
I'm biased cause i've been a martial arts fan my entire life but Donnie Yen always delivers amazing fight scenes. He's a great director that can see the action from a real fighter's eyes. Movie is good along with a great supporting cast.
