This Tsui Hark film also seems to get a verbal beating...naturally we can all waste our time banging on about opinions etc...but I was truly astounded after seeing this film...perhaps it is because I'm a Tsui Hark mentalist but this film was nuts on so many levels, so much visual stuff was happening all the time that it really makes you wonder just how someone directs a film like this...I mean compare this to The Phantom Menace which I believe came out about the same time and Legend of Zu beats it hands down...perhaps it is too much for most viewers which is perhaps why Miramax(?) did not give it a general release in the states which I think would have then given it the chance to at least show in SOME cinemas here in the UK...in any case, I liked it and if you have been hearing / reading negative reviews and have not seen it - give it a chance!
