This review is from: Dragon [DVD] (DVD)
True this isn't an all out martial arts action flick. What it is, is a very good story which throws in some fantastic fighting elements. The bulk of the film surrounds a detective who is determined to uncover donnie yens true identity and dark past. The villains in this film are truly ruthless as a bad guy should be and the fight sequences are fantastic. I'd recommend this to any eastern cinema/martial arts lover. The only Redfin it doesn't get 5 stars is because yet again, the story and hence the movies run time, has been cut for western audiences, (because apparently we have the attention span if a fish. Casing point, the other review!!). If you want the full uncut version you'll have to track down "Wu Xia". This is the HK or eastern release and us fully uncut at around 20 mins longer.
