      First off, I want to re-affirm that the" Well Go" brand continues to furnish an excellent product. They are one of my favorite studios in both genre and presentation. That said, RISE OF THE LEGEND is another winner. A beautiful job on cinematography is connected to a lucid and engaging storyline. The action is very good with some obvious CGI and wire-fu. The main star is not a top notch martial artist but still does a good job. Sammo Hung is still a major force after more than 30 years in the biz.

      Set in the early 1900s or so, this is a pretty good martial arts film. Loosely based on areal person of Chinese folklore, but very loosely. Sammo Hung plays a bad guy, and does it well. Hung is the real deal by the way. Eddie Peng, a name I see more and more, puts in a great performance, despite the fact he is not a legit martial artists, he sure does a good job of acting like one. Many good fight scenes and a minimum of drama make this one recommended.

      I found a great buy in a Blu-ray DVD. Searching in the bargain rack, I found a great kung fu movie. It's looks very modern because it's Blu-ray but same old story of deceit and revenge. It's an action packed movie and well made. It really brings back memories from the kung-fu movies of old.

      As is the case with most of these movies, this is a Chinese melodrama. Set in the late 1800s, it features lots of excellent action, good characters, with a pretty decent (if familiar) storyline, and the main villain is Sammo Hung! A definite plus!

      Cool movie, nice story plot. Keep us interested from beginning to end. Watched with my hubby and son, they both gave it two thumbs up. I usually hate watching these kinds of movies because they usually fight for no reason and have no plot, but this is not the case for this movie. For those who like these types of movies will enjoy this one, we did.

      There have been quite a few movies made about the life of Wong Fei Hung over the years, the best (IMO) being the Once Upon a Time in China series. This one isn't as good as those but it's still a very entertaining movie. Fight scenes are well done and the acting is pretty good as well. I'd recommend to fans of the martial arts genre.

      THERE'S STILL ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT FOR THIS FILM; BUT SUFFICE IT TO SAY, THE CINEMATOGRAPHY/ DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY IS AWESOME(LET'S GIVE CREDIT FOR THAT); FOR MOST OF THE STORY LINE IS NOT THAT BAD; THIS IS JUST MY OPINION: I WISH THERE WERE MORE KUNG-FU STUFF/AND WITH SWORDS ALIKE: THAT WOULD BE TRULY EXCELLENT
