Review:

Keeping in mind that I have no knowledge of Chinese history, martial arts or calligraphy, I thought this movie was simply amazing.

The colors and the sounds are enough to make this movie great - but the plot line was unique, and the ending was suprising - which is hard to come by now-a-days.

The fact that it is subtitled helps it a lot, in my opinion.

The fight scenes were just that, fighting, even if it incorporates the "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" flying fights and such - I think they do it well without overdoing it.

The coriography of the scenes were breathtaking. This movie was completely beautiful in every scene.

I'm not sure anything but theater screen and sound would do it justice - atleast for the first time.

But - I do have to say one thing:
The friend I went to see it with fell asleep. But he's not one to like subtittled movies so take that as you will.

Basically you've got to see this movie, and you've got to see it in a theater. It's worth the 6 bucks (or equvilant) you have to pay.

I watched this at the movies and bought the dvd. The dvd feature actually offers film-dubbing instead of subtitles.

i watched the film mainly cos iv never been disapointed in any of the jet lee flicks.

the film itself is in cantonese.

i spoke to my girlfriends dad (hes chinese) and apparently, this film is 12 years old.
all they did was digitally remaster it and chucked it on the big screen.

great film tho.

THATS exactly what i told him mate!
(cept i didnt know it was called Ying xiong and didnt have the sense to quote IMDB)

the old man knows hes stuff tho, and he did explain the entire plot to me without watching the film.
*shrug*

only explanation i have is he mustv watched the original.
no chance for him reading the blurb (he cant speak english)

ha!
if he could do that mate id call him HERO.

the dudes 68. he cant even work the toaster.
(me gf's 20 now so he had her when he was 48, his wife 31)

technically, when he was 17 she was a sperm.

iv tried explaining this to my gf but she somehow finds the thought of her dad as a sperm unattractive
*shrug*

i guess he mustv been talking about the ORIGINAL hero/ Ying xiong (if there was one)
il let u know.
