[7.25/10] Rise of the Legend (2014)

Rise of the Legend (2014)

Quick Review: A notch below Tsui Hark's Wong Fei Hung series "Once Upon a Time in China" 1 & 2, yet still a solid effort, "Rise of Legend" may be a bit too demanding in terms of storytelling, as it often gets lost in its many flashbacks and back stories, but it more than makes up for all its messiness with some strong acting, highly polished visuals and stunning sets, but above all, with its first-rate fight scenes and inventive shooting techniques, leading to great results and perfect satisfaction.

First I've heard of it - will have to watch.

Alex, it's one of the better Asian films of 2014. You should give it a go.
