[color=black][color=black][font=Tahoma]This movie was definitely missing something, and no I'm not talking about the baby crawling across the ceiling. I think an Amazon reviewer hit the nail on the head: [/font][/color][color=#509423][font=Tahoma][/font][/color]

[color=black][font=Tahoma]"Wong FE Hong should have been played by Jet Li" [/font][/color][color=#509423][font=Tahoma][/font][/color]

[color=black][font=Tahoma]It was missing that one extra star. The guy playing Wong FE Hong just wasn't that good. It was obvious in the medical scenes that he just wasn't as good an actor as Jet Li. [/font][/color][color=#509423][font=Tahoma][/font][/color]

[color=black][font=Tahoma]Also, that whole addicted to opium, fighting off the addiction, etc, etc was painful to watch, what horrible acting/directing. The relationship between the Dad and Sister In-law was fantastic though. That particular acting/directing relationship was done really well. [/font][/color][color=#509423][font=Tahoma][/font][/color]

[color=black][font=Tahoma]The last fighting sequence made the whole movie worth watching. There is a little bit splashed here and there to keep you interested, the story is average at best, but the last fighting scenes are great. [/font][/color][color=#509423][font=Tahoma][/font][/color]

[color=black][font=Tahoma]This movie is just above average as a whole, worth renting not buying, but definitely worth seeing. Anyone giving this movie then movie 6 or 7 stars bought the film before seeing it, making them bias. But watch this movie for sure, and then make your decision.[/font][/color][color=#509423][font=Tahoma][/font][/color]

(Fist of the Red Dragon - this is the worst example of crappy story, good fight scenes. Even in Jackie's simplier films, I do genuinely care about the characters enough to bear with what's happening in between the fights. Also in Jackie's simpler films, there's always humor throw in between to keep the viewer engaged. They tried to do that in Fist of the Red Dragon, but none of it worked. I used the fast forward button often, so it wasn't too painful in between fight scenes. The main attraction here is Donnie Yen vs. Club Foot from Once Upon A Time in China; and they delivered at the finale. Both are super fast and quick kickers. The guy who plays Wong Fei Huang is not bad either. The story is about Wong's attempt to rid China of opium and corrupt generals. It's been done a million times before, but I guess what's interesting is the combination of Wong Fei Huang and Begger Tso in the same film - both are masters of the drunken fist.)

I put up a pic of my super sexy self ;) on Hot or Not, and see what kind of responses I would get. Please don't ask me for the link cuz it's not something I want my friends to see. Maybe when I put up a more respectable pic, I'll let you guys know.

Anyway, it is true that the responses I got so far are all from chicks who are interested in body piercings, pain, nocturnal, fire, tattoos, and vampires, and none of them are asain. But the person featured in that article conveniently left out the fact that there are very few asian girls on Hot or Not. And since my score is so far an 8, like that guy, that means he's just as dorky as I am, and I just can't see the few asian girls on site showing much interest.
