Lots of nice costume design and a good fight scene with a kwan dao as the primary weapon, but beyond that, this film is more form than substance. It has a decent number of fight scenes but most of these, with a couple of exceptions, are uninspired and mechanical. Donnie Yen puts on a typically nice display of skill and Tony Leung shows a few nice moves, but overall. after watching this film, I couldn't help but feel that I had been left hanging. It does have some of the best stars of Hong Kong Cinema including Joey Wong (possibly one of HKC's most beautiful stars), Tony Leung, and Michelle Yeoh, but not much to offer beyond that. It's not unwatchable, but you could do a lot better for a martial arts flick.
