28 January 2018 | JDreviews101
| Another unoriginal and low IQ martial arts movie.
Guess what? The same story that has been told over and over again is told here once more. It brings absolutely nothing new to the table. It just feels like another soulless and rubbish attempt at rebooting the style of the 80's martial arts classics, and this one in particular falls very short. Not worth watching.

PROS: * Somewhat acceptable directing - nothing special, but at least most of the shots and action sequences are ok. * Sets and scenery fit just about fine with the story - production design is suitable. * Fighting sequences are pretty average but have the right balance between flashiness and realistic combat. Always grateful to the martial artists that work in these films and their commitment to the entertainment industry.

CONS: * Weird transitions between some of the scenes and choppy editing are a big distraction that makes the movie look bad. * Goofy in-movie subtitles (words in different colors and sizes) are unnecessary and very distracting. This particularly makes the movie look amateurly made. * Bad acting all the way through - line delivery is extremely cringy and painfully weak. * Terrible writing - lines are extra cheesy and utterly laughable. Arguably an 8th grader could've written a better script. The movie obviously relies in making dumb excuses all the way through to keep some of the action and unnecessary fighting scenes going. * It brings absolutely nothing new to the genre - makes it another forgettable and sadly unoriginal martial arts film.
