The Storm Riders (1998)

Summary: Overrated but still nice
Pure eye-candy with special effects galore. An ambitious martial arts expert bent on world conquest seeks out his fortune from a renown prophet. The prophet tells him of his 10 years of prosperity as a result of 2 of his students, Wind and Cloud but what was his catalyst for success ends up being his catalyst for demise. This movie is overrated by Hong Kong movie fans but still a nice movie.

I felt this movie 99% special effects. The acting wasn't good at all. Aaron Kwok and Ekin Cheng have absolutely no emotion the entire movie. No REAL fighting skill is exibited here (not like I really expected any) as all the fighting scenes are shrouded by effects. Sonny Chiba plays an outstanding villian however.

[8.0/10]
