Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wu Xia Blu-Ray (Region A) (English Subtitled) Donnie Yen (Blu-ray)if your a donnie yen fan... its a movie you gotta have... the movie overall was very good... don't want to give away too much but... but i watched it twice once i received it and it was awesome both times... it was just that good... video quality was very good... subtitles were spot on as well... action is great as always especially with donnie yen...
basic line what the movie is about... once a bad guy trying to live a good life... nosy cop trying to bring him in for his past crimes basically...
the down sides would probably be the price... a bit on the pricey side... and as well as shipping... envelope says it came from singapore... with no tracking number... and it took about three weeks to get to me... was a bit impatient... but i killed some time with other movies i purchased elsewhere... if i was to order another movie from these guys i might send it priority to myself next time...

I agree... I waited until one seller had it for $22 so it came today and I just watched it. Awesome.
After all that cool noir type build up and the reveal that he's Tang Long etc, I didn't see the shoulder tap and hacking his own arm off coming lol, up to that point Kaneshiro's character was going on with his investigation, acupuncture etc, then Tang Long hacks his arm off after tapping his vital points to keep him from pain and dying? to me, that was the only weak part of the movie, after that it became a typical over the top martial arts flick with only the beautiful ending cleaning it all up. I expected one more big fight with him having BOTH ARMS lol. I could buy him having a damaged arm, then having to heal it etc... but the arm hack didn't seem necessary even if they tried to have it as a symbolic gesture to "sever" himself from the 72 Demons clan, no pun intended... it did give them the chance to factor in Kaneshiro's aid at the end.
