Read reviews that mention jet action movies effects scenes martial arts chinese kung english subtitles hark special tsui inn acting fight films cgi watched. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. The story line is interesting but it plays This is an all flying Kung Fu slugfest. People are flying all over the the place as if they were SuperMan, Superwoman. The 3D is real good. The story line is interesting but it plays in the background to daggers and swords flying through the air.
It is entertaining and funny at times. I would buy another like this. One of the best 3D titles available. Both subtitled and dubbed editions are included. Reading the subtitles is sometimes a challenge with the visual, but the subtitled edition is flat and basic. Opening shot over the harbor is amazing, and a good idea of what is to come. If you are looking for a new disc to show off your 3D, this is an excellent choice.
On a par with "Life of Pi" and "Hugo. Directed by Tsui Hark. But this film is all about the crazy martial fighters being, well, crazy martial fighters. Who is challenging whom and why and how that flip flops all over the place is in part an excuse to let the combatants fight and in part a convolution to keep the audience guessing about whose side some of the combatants are really on. Jet Li is one of the stars of the pic but the narrative focus is so broken up over so many that he, just like so many others, turns into being just one of many co-stars.
Li has been credited as saying that this would be the first wuxia film to be lensed in 3-D. One person found this helpful. Forget the plot in this movie. I got this video mainly for its 3D effects. Most 3D videos are simply 2D to 3D convertibles and so are not much better than the 2D original. It's just another way for the studios to gouge the consumers by charging extra for them.
This one is different and is comparable to Avatar. If you like 3D effects and action stuff, get this movie. Extremely convoluted and confusing. On a different note, I have a bone to pick with Amazon. Bought this Bluray from Amazon. Makes absolutely no sense to me. I'm still within the day return period, so actually I can send the disc back and re-order it at a lower price. They're collecting taxes now and only have a 7-day price match when most brick and mortar stores in my area and probably every where else have a day price guarantee.
Extremely disappointed with them. Probably never buy from them again. They're collecting taxes and have a shorter price guarantee. There's no advantage to buying from Amazon. Actually it's riskier now because of the shorter price match policy. The English dubbing is throw back to another time, however much of the dubbed dialogue is done when the actors are either looking down or are off camera so it is not too distracting.
This is chop socky, Flying Swords movie. These guys know their 3D. I didn't watch this film in 3D and perhaps if I had seen it in 3D it would have been better. It seems like that is where they placed a lot of their focus.

That being said, the CGI in this film needs a lot of help I find that a lot of Chinese movies are introducing more CGI but they are still a little behind the times. I found the CGI quite distracting throughout the movie. I'm okay with wire-fu, but with the "help needed" CGI, it just made the wire-fu seem off.
On to the good parts. The plot played out pretty good, the Eunuchs seemed particularly nefarious, the anti-hero proprietress was played very well, the barbarian gang wasn't as good as I would have liked, but they did OK. All in all, I would watch this again. I realize that this is an achievement as the Chinese first in 3D films, hopefully I can actually see it in 3D someday to round out my review. If you love this genre, you'll really love this movie. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful.
