    I can clearly see where the inspiration for my beloved Xena came from, but this cheesy Hong Kong martial arts film is just passable entertainment that relies too much on the use of step-printed slow motion and is filled with repetition and expository dialogue instead of enough fighting.

    Fantastic wuxia film that is well deserving of its reputation. Great stuff.

    Much of the overacting from the human yin/yang comes across as comedy. There's some good wuxia scenes, but it's mostly drama, romance, and bad effects. Interesting lighting and colors, but very dated and overrated.

    This was a beautiful movie combining action, good romance, and a tragic yet captivating story. I admit the villain was a bit on the strange side but nevertheless it was good. The sequel can't beat this.

    A great example of Chinese action-fantasy. Incredibly good looking. Fighting choreography is also top notch. RECOMMENDED.

    Better than Crouching Tiger! A real martial arts fairy tale.

    Filmed exclusively at night this extreme Romeo & Juliet is based on a Chinese folk tale whose narrative occasionally succumbs to Peter Pau's translucent cinematography and Phillip Kwok's graphic, elegant, unpretentious choreography. Taiwanese model turned Hong Kong actress Brigitte Lin is probably best known for the aforementioned bride with untamable white locks. Action starlet Elaine Lui co-stars as one half of a Siamese twin villain whose obnoxious laugh is offset by Francis Ng's over-the-top delivery.

    With brilliant special effects, costumes, make-up, set design and cinematography, this visually splendid fantasy lacks the coherent plot needed to captive and carry its audience through its gestation.
