A film with seriously confused direction. Is it a moral tale, philosophical treatise, exposition of styles, actioner ? Bolo throws all this together, but somehow forgets to combine or cook them properly.
Reviewer Score: 2
John Cheung spends the first hour wandering around looking pathetic and downtrodden. There are occasional outbreaks of fu fighting, but they are quickly contained ! There is silly kiddy humour with the classroom scenes, which include an adult with the kids as a figure of fun. John takes some fu lessons from Candy Yu and various old masters, and finally takes on Bolo's character. Even the climactic scene isn't very good, but I was thoroughly bored by then anyhow.
Not your average fu cheapie by any means. Could perhaps have been interesting, but was a big flop. Pass.
