| Complicated by the Mystery and Intrigue
This movie takes place in 1868 during the Qing Dynasty in the port city of Guangzhou, China with two rival crime syndicates controlling all of the lucrative American and European trade markets. And because these two crime syndicates are so powerful and ruthless the people living there have to subject themselves to all kinds of degradation simply to make ends meet. So when a young "Wong Fei-Hung" (Eddie Peng) watches as his father is killed trying to save innocent people from a fire set by one of these crime syndicates he decides to do something about it with the help from his close friends "Fiery" (Jing Boran) and "Chun" (Wang Luodan). But in order to accomplish this he must first infiltrate one of these crime organizations and coordinate his actions with his two friends on the outside. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was a complicated movie for me to follow in some instances due to the in-depth intrigue and mystery incorporated within the plot. Likewise, some of the unrealistic martial arts scenes left me less than impressed as well. Even so, this wasn't a bad film necessarily and for that reason I have rated it accordingly. Average.
