"I know this movie was originally a tv series spanning about 28 episodes. How Tai Seng managed to cram all that into 120 minutes is beyond me. But what I saw made sense, probably because I already knew the original Bruce Lee storyline. I have never seen the original Donnie Yen episodes, only this very editted version, so I cannot be bias and say that this movie [stunk] compared to the tv series. Until I can somehow get my hands on the tv series, I'll have to be content with this movie version. I thought overall it was rather enjoyable, though I did think that the storyline did jump around quite a bit. What I was looking at was mostly the fighting, which I thought was great. Other than some of the fights being ridiculously sped up, I thought it was up to the Donnie Yen standard. Yen blends his own style and Bruce Lee's style, most notably the Hiyaa-wah sounds. Being a big fan of Bruce Lee's "Fist Of Fury" and Jet Li's "Fist Of Legend", Yen's version isn't bad at all. I am hoping to find the 28 episode series soon, so I can better understand the full story of Yen's retelling of Chen Jen and the Ching Wu school."
