When it comes to martial arts movies, this one writes the book. A spectacular cast romp through a funny, inventive, breakneck tale of a Chinese gangster wannabe in the days of the warlords, trying to make his fortune and maybe save a few lives on the way. There is some comedy which a western audience might find inappropriate and some subject content you might not want your kids to see (for Instance, Sammo Hung's hero runs a brothel). But I'd recommend it to any fan of action and adventure, and especially kung fu. The visuals are amazing, the stunts eye-popping, and there is a truly jaw-dropping fight between Sammo Hung and Cynthia Rothrock that no fan of the genre should miss. Top quality sound and picture, too, and good extras.
