Stunning Hong Kong action-fantasy about a powerful swordsman who teams up with a young, beautiful witch to fight the forces of evil. He’s a high-ranking member of the Wu-Tang clan who is tired of his responsibilities, but once he teams up with the woman who fights for a renegade cult his clan is greatly angered and sends out its forces in full supply to deal with him. Great to look at, though the story is really hard to follow at times.
