Two things to add. Three actually, but the first is just a heartly endorsement of this movie as one of the most breathtaking kung fu
movies I've seen.
Second, this movie features as one of its characters a young Wong Fei Hung (star of the Once Upon a Time in China movies and historical Chinese hero). The kid who plays him is thoroughly impressive (as are all of the main characters in this film, really) and it's nice to have a tie to other films (ironically, there is a "sequel" that doesn't include this character, has nothing to do with this film plotwise, and stars Donnie Yen in a different role than he played in the first film. Go figure).
Third, the aforementioned Donnie Yen, who plays Wong Fei Hung's father, is fantastic. Kung fu fans are most likely to recognize him from his role in the second Once Upon a Time in China film (where he played a city official of some sort who was rather incredibly handy with sticks and bits of cloth...). I think Yen has a fair shot at being one of the next crossover stars in the tradition of Jet Li -- he's got the looks, he seems to be a decent actor, and of course his working relationship with Yuen Woo Ping can't hurt. I see he had a role in Highlander: Endgame and I'm tempted to check it out, despite my general antipathy for all things Highlandertm.
Fourth (this being a postscript), the movie is apparently being released to American theaters in Fall 2001, presumably due to the success of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. This is an exciting time for fans of subtitled films like myself. Go see it.
