Eight Escorts

Summary: Star-studded actionfest

This one shows off all the way. The opening credits have the top eight actors each doing a flashy set-piece of stunning fu. The story shifts focus between several sets of characters, and the action is nearly continuous and of a high standard.

I found it hard to care much about any of the characters, and the film is certainly nearly all style with not much substance. Pretty impressive, though.
