Nice!

Hark's next movie will be called 'The Taking of Tiger Mountain', and is based on a novel from the 1950s.

It's currently out in France, but I won't go see it until later on essentially to have the original dub instead of the French one.

And my local theater will be having it as part of an Asian cinema event that is set to start in a couple of weeks - so far I know they'll screen this and The Raid 2.

My mom and I decided to have a Detective Dee double feature on Netflix on Sunday. Saw first Phantom Flame then this one. I have to admit, I liked both films. I will be reviewing this film later this week :)

Finally saw this one a couple of days ago (Mandarin dub with French subs). And it's GREAT. I still put The Raid 2 over this one as far as "best Asian movie of the year" goes, but it's one GREAT film - on par with the first one, though it's hard to tell which I liked the most.

The action really got OTT at times and I felt the "sea dragon" was kinda meh (the love-child of Godzilla and a manta ray ?! Was that the best you could come up with ?!), but I liked the story (impressive how all goes together when the beginning seems to have so many different plotlines), the sets (the opening scene with the ships was damn impressive), the characters (to be fair, I found Angelababy was essentially eye-candy, but I certainly won't complain about it) and it was nice of Tsui Hark to have the monster from Creature From The Black Lagoon showing up for a backstory and that guy even got a happy ending - seriously, that mutated dude kept making me think of this monster, I couldn't help it.
The comedy (cause there is) is also enjoyable - that whacky doctor simply killed me, he's so freaking hilarious (especially in the end credits scenes - hope you didn't miss those)

I agree w/ U 100% GHW.

It was wonderful to see something in the year 2014 and well into the 21first century that REALLY satisfied my kung fu movie longings.

I think I like YDD better that the first by a small margin.
