I love this movie. The story is very engaging, with an easy to follow plot. Wong Tao and Tan Tao Liang work very nicely together, first as enemies then as friends, very believable performances. The fight scenes are plentiful, the most exciting being the very last one of course.
I didn’t notice any frame cutting, sped up scenes, or wirework, the choreography is very well done. As I said previously all the fighting is good, especially the last fight scene which is excellent.
I’m a huge Wong Tao fan and I think this is his best performance. Tommy Lee was also very good as Mr Lung, and of course Tan Tao Liang looks amazing all the time with his incredible leg fighting.
I don’t know what else I can say about this movie. To me it’s exactly what a kung fu movie is meant to be. Easy to follow plot, lots of action, and lots of Wong Tao.
