    Stay away, run as far as you can....

    I purchased this film due to my adoration of Vanness Wu, formerly known for being a member of the Taiwanese band the F4 and co-star in the Meteor Garden series. Vanness is an amazing singer, dancer and performer but none of these qualities come through in this steamer. Don't be misled by the fighting on the front, most of the film focuses on the love relationship his character "Bond" has with his teacher. The ending is rushed, the script is horrific, the choreographed fighting is awful and the directorship is absurd. I was only able to get through this film on the sustenance of Vanness'beautiful abs. It doesn't help at all that the majority of the film isn't even in Vanness' own voice since he speaks English and Mandarin and the movie is in Cantonese. Uhhgg...don't waste your money.
