Not what I expected, but a great drama/action though.
Like most of the people I expected a wild action packed special effects loaded movie, well it isn't. But I'm not disappointed like all the others who wrote a comment here. It has more story than the average Hong Kong movie and the acting is also of a high standard. I agree that it could use some more action scenes, but the few action scenes look totally great! I don't know if it is historically correct (I don't think so) but what movies are?

If you want to see a good Hong Kong movie without the cheesy humor most of them have but with great acting and a nice story then give this one a try. It's not for all you kung fu action freaks although I think I'm one myself:)
