The story, which should be forbidden, keeps coming back for more. Whenever the plot pops up, from predictable love scenes to the villainess who hates men for no reason to the crypto-Confucian lines, you keep wishing for the next fist to fly.
There should be a serious word limit on reviews so that people don't include so little and get away with such poor reviews like this one. This movie was a love letter to Kung Fu fans and it was a great bit of fantasy. Nobody ever complains when epic movies like LOTR have villains like Sauron who say or do little. This movie was about Kung Fu fighting and philosophy and it was successful in exhibiting that. You got Jet Li and Jackie Chan fighting and beautiful scenery, that's enough to make a good movie. The plot is just an excuse.

If you've seen The Bride with White Hair you would know why the villainess hates men.
