Action & Adventure
First time I've seen a non-mainstream-language movie being shown in a UAE cinema hall without being dubbed into English. Decent filming locations, sets, choreography, effects and wuxia story, though a bit heavy on wire-fu (which I think it quite passe these days). The comic-book villains with their special martial powers kind of reminded me of Seven Swords. Still, worth a second-choice watch.
