In the mythical land of Huadu, Charcoal Head, a humble boy born to rule an empire must undertake his journey to claim his throne. It is an epic action adventure combining romance, fantasy, comedy and cutting edge Hong Kong style martial artistry.

1.0 out of 5 stars Embarassingly Awful February 13, 2012
Format:DVD
This is the "in name only" sequel to The Twins Effect which is actually a fun romp with some great action scenes. This movie on the other hand is a complete mess.

The acting is awful. The script demands than everyone in the cast act like an idiot and make stupid faces. There's ridiculous scenes such as when a group of men grow breasts or when Donnie Yen (Who plays a character NAMED "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Why?) is struck with a love potion.

People may flock to this because Jackie Chan and Donnie Yen have a fight scene, but it's a waste. It is such a derivative copy of Donnie's fight with Jet Li in Hero, that it's face-palmingly stupid. Key scenes from that fight are copied shot for shot because the film makers couldn't be bothered to be more creative. The rest of it is choppily edited and shot too close.

There are much better Chinese films that deserve an unaltered US release like Wu Xia, Woman Knight of Mirror Lake, and the underrated Wind Blast. Releases like this one just continue to give the false impression that Asian films aren't worth the trouble of bringing to the US.

1.0 out of 5 stars Highly Disappointing April 16, 2012
By J Tate
Format:DVD
This is a movie that is having an identity crisis and just can't decide what it wants to be....a movie about Amazonian women, silly romantic teenagers, martial arts or some kind of weird fantasy. They threw everything in this but the kitchen sink and it shows, what a mess. I could barely watch it until the end. The plot is silly and the acting definitely sub par. The only good part in it was the fight scene between Jackie Chan and Donnie Yen but it's not worth watching just for that. I hope that having Daniel Wu play a eunuch in this strange movie will not cloud my love for his acting ability and sex appeal in every other movie I see him in from now on...that was just WRONG. What were you thinking accepting this role Daniel? Just an all around waste of a movie. Save your time and money and watch something else.

1.0 out of 5 stars Blade of Kings April 2, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
OMG this movie was horrible!!! I bought it based on the two great reviews and because I was a Donnie Yen fan. The plot was stupid and the characters were worst. I gladly gave away the movie. Don't waste your money, this is not an action flick.

Format:DVD
I still have the original Hong Kong all region, 2 disc special edition of this film originally titled "The Twins Effect II". I never thought it would see the light of day in the United States. The film came out in 2004. It is not a sequel at all to the action packed "The Twins Effect"; which was butchered when it was released here as "The Vampire Effect". They (not Well Go USA by the way) changed the opening, changed the music, and cut a lot of the film out; ridiculous. Hopefully, Well Go USA leaves this film intact and doesn't butcher it. The Hong Kong dvd looks great upconverted to 1080p so I expect the blu-ray to look incredible. There is a nice fight scene with Donnie Yen fighting Jackie Chan in a temple. The gorgeous Twins are always fun to watch. They have some decent fighting scenes too. Daniel Wu is in the film as well. This is a day one purchase for me. If you enjoy quirky, fun and exciting Hong Kong action films with big Hong Kong stars then definitely purchase this blu-ray. Jackie Chan's son Jaycee Chan is in this film before his tremendous work in the film "Invisible Target" with Nicholas Tse, Wu Jing and Shawn Yue. Jaycee does a good job in this film too. I still watch this film today and will enjoy the blu-ray as well. Thank you Well Go USA. Maybe they will pick up "Twins Mission" next starring Sammo Hung, Twins, Wah Yuen and Wu Jing.

4.0 out of 5 stars A cute story June 15, 2012
Format:DVD
If you took a tale like "The Dragonslayer" & made it into a martial arts flick, this is what it would be. Is it high drama? No! But it is a cute story of love conquering evil, redemption winning the day, and a somewhat simple but lovely boy giving up a kingdom for a beautiful girl. So, it may not be the best film ever, but it is an amusing one, and for that, I can say it's worth seeing once.

1.0 out of 5 stars A major step back for special effects and martial arts. February 18, 2014
Format:DVD
This was painful to watch...
Never did I think I would see Jackie Chan or Donnie Yen participate in a fight scene where they would rely so much on cheesy special effects and slow motion. Skip this movie. It will make the Superman IV effects and fight scenes better by comparison.

3.0 out of 5 stars Glorified TV December 17, 2013
By Cynthia
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The fight scenes are too weak, except for the fight between Donnie & Jackie. The fights looked too choreographed. Also, the movie looked like a TV show, not like a movie.
