Funny how re-watching this it became clear to me just how many times Kill Bill directly referenced this movie. Multiple shots could be almost copy-pasted from one movie to another without any real huge issue.
Anyway, I don't speak Mandarin, so while I'm aware that apparently the actors' accents are terrible, it obviously wasn't a problem for me and I'm grading this movie based on my appreciation of it.
And it was fabulous!
Stunts - 83/100 | Wire-work is absolutely more demanding on the body than what most people think. The stunt and wire work in this is slick and looks beautiful.
Narrative - 78/100 | Meanders somewhat and the ending left me cold a bit, but overall it…
