Amazing marital arts and some laughs in this adventure Hong Kong film. Visually resplendent, emotive, action-packed adventure from David Lan, visionary director of cult-classic, Saviour of the Soul.

Sweet Mary, mother of God, what a kick ass film! Eel style is the greatest of all kung fu styles in my book. From the maker of the wacky horror films Possession 1 & 2 comes this fantastic martial arts film with some amazing fight sequences. If your blood isn't pumping by the last fight sequence, check out Pride and Prejudice, I think you might really enjoy that one.
