I must say the title of the movie doesn’t fit the story. It’s probably from poor translation. The plot takes Li’s character on a path from a cocky hometown hero to humbled martial arts legend that unites the people of China. The movie contains awesome choreographed fight scenes taken place in ancient China.
Rarely do Jet Li’s movies have interesting storylines, but this one is loosely based on a true story, and it’s too bad the writers were unable to captivate some sort of authenticity and experience. Instead, it seems the martial arts sequenced were the prime focus of the movie. The high production values and face-paced fight scenes will keep you entertained, but don’t expect to be engaged into the plot.
