What are people saying?

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Rise of the Legend

    Folk hero Wong Fei-hung is reborn, or at least remade, with "Rise of the Legend." Actor Eddie Peng acquits himself well for a non-martial artist, but the real star here is genre veteran Corey Yuen's bone-crunching fight choreography, which feels particularly brutal and hard-hitting for this kind of film. If only "Rise" wasn't too protracted for its own good, running out of steam long before the climactic battle.
