That was an awesome movie! A little slow for me, but incredibly fun. I am glad my girlfriend was there to explain to me the history, because I wouldn't have gotten some parts otherwise.
I can see what parts of this films other movies has used as reference (like Pirates of The Caribbean), and that was pretty cool. Also, the fight sequences at first were normal levels of cool, but they gradually get cooler and the some of the stuff at the end was awesome. I'm just not into the overly objective style of covering these fight sequences, but I understand that was popular at the time.
Overall good experience. I think a few punchlines didn't land because of Jet Li's super serious face that he has all the time.
