I loved this film and also hated it. It had a simple plot, was well acted, well choreographed and well directed. It had themes of love, betrayal and honour but in the end, it was not the classic it should have been. The problem lies with the action scenes. They were efficiently done but featured the silliest use of long hair that I have seen. The main character kept twirling his head and used his long hair to knock people out! It they removed this, it would have been a great film. Overall, it was a good clone of Once Upon A Time In China but not anywhere near that classic.
DVD featured a brilliant transfer and nice extras.
