    Great movie, excellent fighting scenes. A lot are very unrealistic though. People just hang in the air forever !<br>
    <br>
    Ehm, kinda weird movie though. Still, great camera work, excellent Dolby Digital and very nice scenerey.

    21.13 More a likely time for a beer <IMG SRC="smileys/biggrin.gif"> <br>
    <br>
    anyway..<br>
    Went to see it in theater. Very nice. Really spectacular effects. Fairytale like. Also liked the fact that it was spoken in mandarin and had dutch subtitles. Almost as good as the Japanese version of Akira with englisch subtitles.<br>

    i saw it last week in toronto, and liked it, but kept getting distracted from reading subtitles by the main guys cantonese..quite fascinating..like he had his jaw wired shut...the chicks may have kicked his butt a bit too often! actually, it's like when i flew in an f-18 and had to tighten my sphincter!

    Hilbert the reason why they were in the air is because they were using Ki (CHI)... an ancient Chinese legend says that the inner power within you is your Chi... and when you use your chi your many times stronger and faster and more agile than you used to be (this is a very very crappy translation <IMG SRC="smileys/sticktongue.gif">)

    Yo!Y2A.Are u a chinese fella?Yes.Chi is something like inner power.Something will boost ur metabolism to make u stronger and faster.U even can fly!But no one knows how to use it anymore.But some still know how to use some basic one. <IMG SRC="smileys/knock.gif">
