... a go-for-broke goof on classic Chinese warrior dramas and revenge thrillers that packs a lot of action, a crazed cascade of comedy, a parade of characters, and a non-stop barrage of loving jabs at classic martial arts adventures into 99 minutes.

Giant action sequences, funny characters, and, my favourite, a giant hand carved into the earth, whomping the bad guy into submission. So much fun.
