This movie is excellent. Now, if you are looking for a bang, bang, shoot-em up, explosion type movie, then I would suggest watching a Micheal Bay movie. But if you are a fan of Traditional Kung Fu movies then this movie will not disappoint. The cinematography of this movie is similar to House of Flying Daggers or Crouching Tiger. The fight scenes are subtle, not your over the top, jump off a building with a flying kick type action scenes. But anybody who knows real kung fu will see that this movie is bringing the real deal. I don't usually write reviews, but I felt compelled to offer a more balanced review than the one provided by the other reviewer.

The plot was good, as were the fight scenes. However the movie jumps all over the protagonists timeline. Past present and future all mixed together.

The film is edited terribly, it seems like it was glued together. The action scenes were as terrible as some of the facial expressions several actors made. The action scenes were dull and at best were an annoyance. There's no saving grace for me with this film. This film would be considered decent if it was a student film.
