Thought this was absolutely hilarious, and loved the intentionally bad overdubbing paying homage to English dubbed kung-fu films. Wanted more with the female character, but the two leads were fantastic. One of my favourites of the heat.

Heavily saturated subtitled peacocking kung fu love quest. Acknowledged the sappy but kept the film wuxia where they could. Populist humour produced the best laughs here eg pop culture references and bad dubbing, as the send ups/nods to HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS and ZU WARRIORS OF MAGIC MOUNTAIN were quirky but for mine a bit ambitious. Certainly memorable but pacing a slight concern as did follow largely the same angle throughout.
