Watch this if you liked: “The White Storm”

The Good, the Bad and the Evil Warlord:

• The film has a very simple plot and theme, but it is very engaging and entertaining, due to its colourful characters and action scenes.

• Kudos to the props and costume department for putting up a very authentic-looking set and traditional outfits.

• With Sammo Hung as the action choreographer, nothing can go wrong with the fighting sequence.

• Both Eddie and Sean were splendid in their roles, and Louis Koo is so annoyingly evil that it will make you want to slap him across the face.

Trivia:

• Eddie Peng was asked to shoot a particular fight scene for 53 times until he got it perfectly right.
