Audience Reviews for Coweb (Zhang wu shuang)


Xin Xin Xiong has done a lot of acting and stunt work, but he decides to step behind the camera for Coweb.

At a brief 87 minutes, which isn't out of the ordinary for an action movie like this, the story is simple and so is the dialogue. A typical bodyguard assignment goes awry. While this may not sound spectacular, it serves its purpose of setting up multiple fights scenes for our heroine to work with.

The action is a plenty and it comes down to something happening every 10 minutes. Real life martial artist Lu Xia Jiang displays her skills in astonishing fashion. The choreography is thought out and there is no joke as to the realism of her talent. The editing is questionable at times, the sound effects are fair, and there are a number of slow motion scenes; however, there is more than enough high octane real time butt kicking to go around.

Lu Xia Jiang's acting doesn't live up to her martial arts abilities, but this is only a minor let down. Kane Kosugi, who is also a great fighter, is a formidable foe for Jiang. Everyone else is pretty much forgettable.

In the end, Coweb shines on the action while everything else takes a back seat. Fans of martial arts should consider this.
