Believe me, there is nothing more ridiculous than seeing Jet Li as Wong Fei Hung in a cheap chicken custom. But hear me out, you don't have to witness this horror throughout the entire film. In fact, WFH doesn't dress up like a chicken until the very end. In the mean time, there are plenty of things to enjoy.

As a true fan of the martial arts genre, you have to like this film. It has excellent fight scenes, but then again this is a Jet Li movie with action choreographed by Yuen Wo Ping and Yuen Cheung Yan, so what else can you expect besides some more of the best choreographed action ever. Of course, being a Wong Jing-directed effort, the movie inevetably contains some crude humor and mindless gags, which in this case was really stupid. Nevertheless, if you want to see superb action, get the hell over here. Leung Kar Yan throws up some old school moves for maybe 5 seconds, but that's still better than nothing. Jet Li is great as usual. Dicky Cheung looks like he can really fight, and it's always a delight to get Gordon Liu on screen. He actually does more than Leung Kar Yan (and the 2 old timers have a fight together), but it's no Master Killer time either. Action-wise, this is a winner.
