    About average as martial arts pics go anymore. Donnie Yen is fun to watch as always. This Chinese-language film takes the typical anti-Japanese stance which is understandable given the setting. I would however for once like to see western actors in an Asian film be proficient enough in the language they're speaking as not to look like Jar Jar Binks attempting to perform Shakespere. Poor dubbing aside Return of Chen Zhen is a pretty good film. It is well choreographed and should satisfy action lovers. Collapse

    Legend of the Fist maybe a little boring at times due to the average story, but going through that to see the spectacular choreography of the fight scenes are totally worth it. Every fight scene is handled with care and will entice any fan of martial arts films.

    When the film shifts to Shanghai and the club Casablanca, there's too much lustrous-hued loitering and too few martialĀ­-arts set pieces.

    Comes close to overdosing on bone-pulverizing kickassery at the expense of a plot that ricochets from the nationalistically fatuous to the lovestruck, farcical before shutting down completely in favor of punch-drunk loveliness.

    Flashy and fun, and a nifty showcase for Yen.
