20 minutes into the film, I thought I was going to love it. Another 50 minutes passed, and nothing really happened. So, in conclusion, this movie starts out great and goes downhills pretty fast.

This is not the first movie to ripoff its soundtrack from that of Ashes of Time. Of course, Wong Kar Wai can do that because he directed Ashes of Time. You can also see that when they're playing the music from Ashes, Tong Leung's character from that movie is transferred here. It is him from Ashes of Time, the serious and expressionless lonesome swordsman.

The beginning had some funny moments. At the end, Zhang Zhen's "custome" will force the laughters out of you as well.

The other themesong in the movie is also a remix of a famous folk song.
