Dragon Tiger Gate
The character development in the film was extremely good. As the film progressed the characters and the relationships that they form with each other continually changed. I find that character development is key in making a film such as this a success. If the characters are unchanging bruisers, the film can get very dry very fast. By showing the paradoxes that characters continually find themselves in, it is easy to relate to them as the viewer.
The costumes were also interesting. Most of the characters looked like they were out of a videogame. There was a very interesting design style here.
My overall opinion of this movie is that it is well worth watching if you are a martial arts fan and want to see a good story tied in with relevant fights.
