6/10 - Camp fantasy wu xia
Reviewed by Simon on 19 January 2004
A little bit too campy and unfocussed for my liking, though I may have enjoyed it more if a wave of over-enthusiastic feedback hadn't preceded it on various forums. Certainly for the time the manic wire-based action was at the cutting edge of a revolution in wu xia films, and therefore doubtless must be appreciated for its influence if not always its implementation.
