Plot Summary

A teenager obsessed with kung fu films is thrown back into the past where he has to return an object to its rightful owner. He falls in with a collection of misfits who aid him in his task

What Worked

  • The fight scene between Jet Li and Jackie Chan. Jackie is great with his Drunken technique, while Jet Li is phlegmatic and all iron, using his robes to great effect.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • The plot is too simplistic and the climax entirely predictable, but then one really cannot complain!
