It has numerous nods to the Shaw Brothers classics and harks back to those swordplay flicks of yesteryear, making you smile, cry, jump for joy and shout like a banshee, like any good martial arts film should.
VengeanceJun 20, 2015
If you love the gunplay genre then you’ll love ‘Vengeance’ as it’s amazing to look at, but the story does take a backseat so that the action can be given centre stage.
True LegendJun 17, 2015
Action fans in particular will find much to appreciate here, especially the chance to see the Drunken style so excellently represented on screen.
The Treasure HunterJun 16, 2015
The set pieces in general are nice, while the cinematography and the musical score do stand out but again, as a whole the film just doesn’t do what it says on the tin.
Shinjuku IncidentMay 24, 2015
There’s some very powerful visual displays of violence that pepper the film throughout, showing us that if you turn to the dark side you really will become slave to its master.
ShamoMay 22, 2015
It’s gonna be a love it or loathe it kind of movie as it’s not the dark, vicious film I expected, although there are some disturbing scenes thrown in there.

I’d say if you love your action then you won’t be disappointed but I still can’t shake the feeling that if Tony hadn’t left the set half way through, things might have been even better.
Little Big SoldierApr 13, 2015
It’s definitely still a Chan movie through and through though, and as bizarre as it sounds, it does give you a slapstick yet emotional tour de force with a cutting edge.
Legendary AssassinApr 11, 2015
Not a complete disaster but by no means the showcase that Wu Jing was no doubt hoping it would be.
Legend Of The Fist: The Return Of Chen ZhenApr 6, 2015
‘Legend Of The Fist’ is a film that promises so much but delivers far less, especially considering this is a collaboration between Donnie Yen and Andrew Lau.
Ip ManMar 30, 2015
If you’re an action fan you won’t be disappointed and for me, this is Donnie Yen’s best film to date from an acting perspective.
Bodyguards And AssassinsFeb 25, 2015
Overall it’s a wonderful film, a blockbuster people call it, and maybe it is, but really for us Asian movie fans this is what it’s all about – a hard hitting, hard punching film with a heart of gold and a fist of iron.
