Fantastic Yu Rongguang Flick
on May 9, 2014
This constitutes one of the better wushu flicks from Yu Rongguang, whom I consider to be one of the best martial arts practitioner from Hong Kong and a great athlete to boot, although he is greatly under used as an actor, given the fact that he continually portrays the bad guy within the genre, thereby, misleading the Asian audience into misidentifying him with the role he plays, and is, hence, rendered quite unpopular. There are only two movies in which he plays the part of the good guy, to commendable effect and great martial arts choreography, namely Iron Monkey and Champions, both of which I consider to be two of the greatest martial arts movies ever made, and both of which are considered to be his best movies to date. He doesn't perform to the high standards he has established for himself in this movie but, nevertheless puts in a commendable performance, only to be out shined by other less known actors, particularly the female cast.
All in all, a rather satisfying and good martial arts movie.
