Legendary Assassin

It's been a while since I've seen a good kick ass kung fu film.  We have here our assassin Bo, who has taken the head of a drug lord. The rest of the gang will not let this rest and seek revenge.  Meanwhile Bo is playing nice with a lady cop and her sleepy precinct since typhoon Bo is keeping him there on the island.

The hung fu is good and fast paced.  The characters for the most part avoid the "instant dumb" aspect of many chinese film.  The exception is a cop named "Tarzan" who instantly hates Bo and basically continually falls on his ass every time he tries to show that Bo is the bad guy.  Chinese films tend to have a very inbalanced approach in their films.  They'll be deadly serious then at a drop of hat go completely "DHERE."  This film nicely avoids the extreme and keeps things moving nicely.
