This mainland production features the same director and much of the cast from Jet Li's Shaolin Temple 1 & 2. The lead here is in fact the villain from Shaolin Temple. I found him trenmemdously better as the good guy though. I will say this movie is flawed to a pretty far extent, but the martial arts is typical of mainland China choreographers, who are for the most part more authentic than, say, Yuen Woo Ping, but are not as stylish. The plot once again does not take into consideration realism, so be warned.
