      This is an excellent movie - it has all elements of an action movie - romance, action, thriller, violence, and good kung-fu fighting. The actress Michele Yan has excellent performance. This movie makes me recall my favorite Hollywood movie "Salt" by Angelina Jolie - I enjoy both movies very much and will watch them over and over again.

      Let me start off by saying I love Karate films for sure. I thought this was good just wished in came in a English version so I wouldn't have to read the subtitles while trying to watch the action. But the fight scenes was awesome and it had a good story line as well.

      I like the way the movie go but next time it might be translate to english not as sub title. Hard to eye catch the story and reading below. But overall good set up and director John woo is always good on this kung fu style action movie.

      I watch martial arts films for their choreography, not necessarily plot or story line, but I really enjoyed this one. A tricky love story wrapped in lies, revenge and of course martial art skills.

      This movie is nowhere near as fun as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, but the action scenes were impressive, and Michelle Yeoh is always fun to watch.

      I buy anything with Donnie Yen, he is a very good martial artist. Not an actor trying to look like one. The movie was very good.

      I don't like movies where you have to spend your time reading subtitles instead of watching the movie.
