      Maxime H A rewatched it and man the story is fantastic, the choreography are on point if you're okay with the style, watch this if you haven't !! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/27/23 Full Review Gianmarco R Unbelievably Chinese-style film with a unique and beautiful style of acting and directing and a truly beautiful plot of redemption. Everything in this movie is beautiful from the acting to the atmosphere to the sets. Nothing is left to chance and the plot, even if it is not very original, is still very valid and well written Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/11/22 Full Review Liam D A cool movie this drama is a fun and enjoyable Action film. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/22/20 Full Review Audience Member Some spectacular fight scenes are on display in a run-of-the-mill vengeance plot. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Started out promising, but devolves into a mess, with terribly done CGI, some awkward wire-fu, and nonsensical plot. Just when you thought the movie should have ended, it goes on for another 40 minutes. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member LOve fOreign films with sO much actiOn!!

      Justin Lowe Hollywood Reporter Diverting but unmemorable martial arts feature unlikely to become a classic. Jun 17, 2011 Full Review Liam Lacey Globe and Mail Somewhere between masterful and messy, Yuen Woo-ping offers lots of kinetic kicks, but his CGI work deserves a kick in the pants. Rated: 2/4 Jun 17, 2011 Full Review Jesse Cataldo Slant Magazine Opting for craziness over coherence, True Legend at least expends its energy in the right place. Rated: 2/4 May 21, 2011 Full Review Ed Travis Hollywood Jesus This marks maybe the first ever film about Drunken Boxing to take a serious dramatic approach and it was a fun film with heavy fantasy elements. Apr 9, 2020 Full Review Amy Curtis We Got This Covered Great fight scenes and diverse martial arts make for a very entertaining film. Rated: 6/10 Mar 25, 2013 Full Review Jay Antani Cinema Writer suffers from an erratic narrative pace, shoddy characters and an overuse of digital gimmickry, all of which create the impression of an ersatz epic spectacle Rated: 2/4 Jan 27, 2012 Full Review Read all reviews
