Kung fu movies* aren't known for their plot but nevertheless this pulls a strange 'Dark Knight' and adds an act it never needed to emphasize some point it didn't set up about the development of Drunken Master. A shorter tighter non-historical render would have been better, Carradine cameo be damned. *Kung fu genre =/= kung fu style, this movie is 'wushu'. --PolarisDiB
A pretty traditional martial arts story with some outstanding fighting but which never seems to find any real dramatic tension. And those times when the CGI takes over, the quality plunges. There are a lot of people I like in the film and, while it's not bad, I really wish it were better.
