NOT a legendary movie!
Verified purchase
I know, I know, it's a martial arts movie but this one takes acting to a new low. The action? Eh. Not anything we have seen before done much better. It's a lot of actors on wires with attempts to be intriguing by using c.g.i. It's far from special yet passable. The story? Huh? I really thought the main part of the movie was over and that a short film was added on. Nope. It's all part of the same movie. It had a very generic "revenge" plot. It tried very hard to be emotionally engaging but failed miserably because the dialogue and acting are absolutely terrible. If you can suspend any judgement and like martial arts with special effects, go for it. Otherwise a really bad movie.

Good tale of revenge then they add an unecessary 2nd part

True Legend is about a conflict between two brothers. Andy On wants revenge against Vincent Zhao for the death of his father. On is a convincing villain who has armor sown into his skin and pasty white make-up. The movie is part fantasy as Chou trains against the God of Wushu/Jay Chou to take on On. The Chou casting by the way was horrible. He’s far too young for the role. There’s a human element as On kidnaps Zhao’s son who cries thinking about his mother Zhou Xun. Two people I wished they used more of were Michelle Yeoh and Gordon Liu. For some reason they add a second part to story which seems completely unnecessary. It also includes Zhao fighting white foreigners which has been seen in dozens of movies before.

It’s as if late in production they decided to make major changes to the script and then they rushed the production without extending the original timeline. So you get bits and pieces of well-made story that were strung together quite poorly. If you can forgive shortcomings of the whole, then the pieces are still good.

good kung fu fighting movie
Verified purchase
anything w/ Yuen Woo Ping (Director) or choreographer, you know the movie's fighting scene would be great. If you dont know who Yuen Woo Ping is.. he is man behind Matrix, Crouching Tiger and lots of the famous fighting scene. His father was well respected kung fu master in Hong Kong. He and his brothers continue to operate a school. Since they so well known, most directors consultants him for advice on movie thus how they got into the movie business.

almost every good Kung Fu student/actor in the movie industry have worked w/ Yuen Woo Ping or his family.

I like martial arts movies and know what to expect, but this one was very bad. The acting, the script and the story...stories. One extra "episode" was added at the end, had nothing to do with original story. Just kept fast forwarding, I wanted to end that bad.
