    Wow. This film must have the highest special-effects-per-minute quota in the history of motion pictures. Unless you count CGI environments in modern movies as special effects. 3 years 3 months ago

    Honestly, if the movie hadn't Tsui Harks committed style and driven special effects, it would very likely end up on this list. That said, although it can be pretty trippy towards the end: if you don't have a thing for wuxia with an emphasis on fantasy, better stay away from this film. 3 years 7 months ago

    Shamefully held up by many critics as a kung fu classic, this over-hyped, incoherent, illogical, headache-inducing fast-cut, wire-overloading mess of a movie is not worth anyone's time. Disappointingly so as there are a few good touches along the way. It stars the acrobatic skills of Yuen Biao and some genuinly funny opening scenes with great chemistry between said Biao and Sammo Hung. Then we transition into some weird mayhem in a cave which keeps our interest fleetingly with some nifty special effects before we are presented with the rest, a waste of their effort and a waste of my time. 4 years 9 months ago
