A great visual experience.
13 April 2003 | by cineast677See all my reviews

This film, an adaptation of Tsui Hark's 1983 classic of Hong Kong cinema by none other than the original director is a visual feast of comic book style special effects and a superhuman battle between good and evil. This is an imaginative film, full of wonder and magic on an epic scale. Legends of Hong Kong cinema unite and come to life in this magical story of supernatural beings and the deeds they do.
