Marvellous mostly due to the display of the characters' intentions, be them subtle or overt, and the moral corruption of the temple, which made this quite joyous. There were some ridiculous scenes with the perpetrators of the attempted theft, but I guess it just goes to show that they were being ridiculous themselves, especially considering the ending. Incredibly beautiful landscapes and colours!
Very funny and entertaining. The battle scene is better than previous King Hu's movie such as Come Drink With Me or Dragon Gate Inn. The final battle reminds me of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon of Ange Lee. But overall it's a little bit to long. I'll like it more if the director cut it shorter.
