This is one of the better action kung-fu and swordsmanship movies I've seen. The special effects are amazing for pre-CGI, as the choreography is almost unbelievable. Lots of action from start to finish, with an interesting storyline. Without giving away to much, it's about sacrifice, brotherhood, loyalty, love, and tragedy all the hallmarks of a great '70's/'80's martial arts flick. Highly recommended!
Pros: The stunt work and action sequences are absolutely amazing for pre-CGI, excellent story, good acting, and unexpectedly much better than anticipated.
Cons: Other than the typical lost in translation parts of the title & storyline, there's not much bad to say about this movie. While the ending was very good, it did open up for a sequel, which we'll prob never get.
