I think I watched this film a hundred times xD
Well, this film is a rare one because it's almost the only one my friends agree with me in case of the rating:
The setting, the fighting scenes and especially the choreography are amazing!! I couldn't tell when therer were special effects or....did they even use some? Ô.o I mean some of the fight scenes were actually so fast that I couldn't tell if they were real! :D
But the story and the characters are one of the worst I've ever seen! There is no improvement and I wanted to kill Jiao Long every time she opened her mouth or appeared on the screen V.v
So 2 stars + 1 big star for the amazing fighting performance!

I am not sure if I should ever put "completed" as my status for this movie, since I am constantly re-watching my favourite episodes and humming allong the OST.

O_o.. Didn't know this movie is in this database :)

I really like one scene near the final when Li mu Bai touch the hand of ... "the woman master"? and says to her that her hand was just like he was imagening her.
The most touching romantic scene ever. :D

I wasn't paying too attention of this movie... until that moment.
I cried.
And then decided that I really like this movie.
