This movie was not as good as I had expected.
It did have a couple of good fights, but the story never really took hold. The idea behind the movie, which is also the motive of Donaka Mark (played by Keanu Reeves), really had potential. It is so sinister, but the reveal was too weak and never harvested the crops from all the seeds that had been sown throughout the movie. In my opinion they should have added more plot between the fights.

I was very disappointed by the acting of Keanu Reeves. He seems very off throughout the entire movie, bordering robot-like movements and dialogue.
The lead actor 'Tiger' Chen Lin Hu also delivered a below average performance in my opinion.

The photography was above average at some points. The scenery for the credits was amazing!

I only think you should watch this if you are a die hard fan of Keanu Reeves (like I am) or Tai Chi. Otherwise there are a lot of other movies in the same genre that are better.
