| Keep it simple for 90 minutes of fun
This is a low budget, by the numbers, been there done that, totally formulaic martial arts movie from Taiwan that came out when the entire genre of martial arts movies was starting to stink like old meat. Yet I find about ten reviews here all saying how much they liked it.

How is that even possible? I think it comes down to two things. The best of these movies are simply all about the martial arts. Here is a simple story about a guy on a journey to learn all he can about martial arts. The only other thing is pacing. Hardly two minutes go by before another fight breaks out. Yes, it is quantity over quality, but at least the fights all look different and have good power and focus. That's all it takes for an enjoyable and quickly forgettable 90 minutes.
