Genre: Horror/ Martial Arts

One of the reason for me to catch this  movie is the trailer seems not bad, and I have never watch any China Films before and decided to give it a try.

A film addapted by a famous Wu-Xia series, “The Great Four Detectives”, that Gordan Chan now will  film it in sequal. This will be part 1. This first part is about, solving a case on fake coins that floating in the market. The emperor had send their secret service team to find what is happening in the town and to trace some mystery too.

It is a movie that you have to watch with your imagination as they are fighting with super powers. A Drama and some of you might find it boring as I am impress to see a few famous line up too, like Colin Chou, Anthony Wong, Crystal Liu, Deng Chao and Ronald Cheng.

Genre: Adventure/ Drama/ Romance

When I saw this movie I was wondering is this movie the same as the cartoon I used to watch long long time ago and my friend told me it’s a great movie too.

After watching the movie only realize that, it’s the same as the cartoon which about a girl who replace her sick dad to the war zone and with her credibility she got promoted very fast with another great warrior beside her and as they fought side by side and their feeling grows stronger and they had fall in love. In the end, the emperor set a role example to the whole nation and she let go of the General pose to go back to village to take care of her father.

Not a bad movie after all. Can watch in the cinema.
