If my martial arts teacher died because he was unable to defend himself in a fight I would reconsider my own abilities and find a new and much better teacher. That's why they never made one of these movies about me.
There are two easy ways to make a bad movie worse. First is failing to get to the point. Chan could have had his revenge in the first scene yet the movie goes on and on introducing new reasons to delay the duel. Second is to take a poorly executed fight sequence and chop it up to make it jerky and missing frames. This happened as a result of the need to placate censorship for violence in different countries. Also two effects need to be avoided. If a sword through the chest needs to be shown then putting the sword in the actor's armpit doesn't fool anybody. And cutting a person in half, top down, always looks stupid.
The only good thing I found was that the lead actor, David Tang Wei, though obviously not a martial artist seemed to do all of the action sequences without a stunt double. Some sequences were quite long without a cut but that was misleading because though long there were few actual moves.
For me this was a watch it once, write a review, never watch it again experience.
