Chor Yuen directs a remake of THE JADE-FACED ASSASSIN, with Lily Ho's part going to Fu Sheng... not a positive change, in my opinion! In fact, Fu Sheng is probably the weakest part of what is otherwise a pretty solid piece of Chor Yuen wu xia - we have the extravagent sets and costumes, the outrageous characters and plot twists, and generally fun action and antics... but Fu Sheng's comedy mugging can be a bit tedious (I have never really liked him in period films though).
Reviewer Score: 7
Not as good as the original film, and not one of Chor Yuen's best wu xia pian, but a reasonably entertaining way to spend 90 minutes of your life :)

Summary: It felt like a epic!!
I wonder if this movie is a chinese mini series or not!! It just feels like a epic movie in only 1 hour 40 minutes!! A lot of things happen but what makes this movie good is the intelligence used by Alexander Fu to get out of situations instead of fighting!! You can see why Alexander Fu is suited to his character and does it so well, he is born to play these type of roles!!
I was really impressed with this movie, a must see SB movie!!
