Saw this on a flight to Asia and was pretty much glued to the screen. At first things seemed to move too fast, but as the characters became more fleshed out (which it did a good job of), things became more exciting. The highlight for me was Anthony Wong's performance. The chemistry between his character and Xiang Yu was amazing, and there is one scene that almost rips your heart out (you'll know which one).
Reviewer Score: 8
On the downside, Leon Lai sleepwalks through the entire film as he often does. For me he did a disservice to this overall great film. But watch it for great performances by Anthony Wong and the actor who played Xiang Yu.
