Martial Arts Styles Used
Nunchaku, Swords (various), Spears
No English audio language option is available, which is normally no problem, but combined with lacklustre acting from the lead roles, a poorly developed characters, dreadful cutting and poor direction left little impact on this viewer. Overall a bad movie, with any hope of the kung fu saving the movie destroyed by over usage of wire-fu, and bad camera angles.
