The point of the film is kung fu. But, sadly, it doesn't deliver.

It's unfortunate that so much of the running time has been given over to the plodding plot about a war between two gangs...

Jet Li deserves better than this.

slick, Joel Silver-produced action movie with a borderline straight to video feel.

Where's Jackie Chan when you need him?

It's not Shakespeare a la Kenneth Branagh, but it's not bad either.

Our star-crossed lovers are so emotionally off-channel, it's easy to forget the origin of the film's title...

The movie barely manages to keep you awake, much less quicken your pulse.

In good Hong Kong cinema, your plots and relationships should never be more preposterous than your fight sequences. If you break this rule, then you wind up this film.

Part kung fu film, part blaxploitation film and part classical allusion, there is neither enough of each to stand alone nor enough to make a compelling hybrid.
