I'm giving this three stars, but I can't recommend it unless you can get a copy that isn't English dubbed. I don't know if there are DVD copies that offer Cantonese and/or Mandarin, but the one I received from Netflix offered English dubbing only. This is very disappointing. Fortunately, it's only the second time this has happened, but I really do wish that Netflix would say right up front that English dubbing is the only audio option; I would never have rented it. It's not just Cantonese and/or Mandarin language films where this is a problem either. ANY non-English language film made should be offered in the original language. English dubbing always distorts the original and almost always dumbs it down. I repeat, do NOT see this film UNLESS you can find it with the audio option of the original language.
This film is directed by Jet Li himself trying to follow the legacy of Bruce Lee's older films where he tried to correct the soldiers.
Great film, kinda reminded me of Rocky a little...I don't know why.
