"Why do I pay you salary, to buy leather shoes?"Clarence Fok Yiu-Leung, director of Seven Swordsman, Naked Killer, Thunder Cop, The Iceman Cometh, Century of the Dragon, Snakeheads, and Together, delivers Special ID. The storyline for this picture is fairly straightforward with some fun characters, solid dialogue, and excellent action scenes. The choreography was impressive and the action scenes were not over done. The cast includes Donnie Yen, Andy On, Collin Chou, Terence Yin, and Tian Jing."Stand up!""Come down!"I grabbed this off Netflix since it was a new Donnie Yen picture I had never seen and he is one of my favorite martial artists. I did adore the action scenes in this movie that didn't rely on CGI or too many pulley systems to make it work. The story itself was a bit vanilla, but the overall picture was entertaining and worth your time if you're a fan of the genre."You don't think I can bury you?"Grade: B-

Louisa T (us) wrote: Great movie! Highly recommended if you can handle a fair bit of violence.
Coltin T (ag) wrote: This movie was well made, though it was entirely void of a plot. If you want to see how modern men recall the lifestyle of aristocrats this film is for you. In summary, this film is over 2 hours of small talk set in the 1930's.
Troy C (br) wrote: This is another movie from my childhood, that I watched over and over again... but just because it's one of my childhood movies, I have to be honest and say this is only a DECENT film. It's got likable, even LOVABLE characters, such as Milo, but all the other characters are forgettable. This is a very pretty movie, there were many shots that made me mumble the word, "Wow..." and appreciate just how wonderful the movie can be. It's got a wonderful style, that you don't see in many other films. The adventure is wonderful, devastating, and engaging, the whole way through, and you'll find yourself laughing at the jokes and nodding at the wise words said.

A little different to the commercial mainstream style it may be, but if you are not in a hurry and do not require constant stimulation, then this film has a few surprises that are worth waiting for. Watched it with my 12 year old who also found it hilarious.

Totally antithetical to what Hollywood cranks out. Had I been with this trio at Mt. St. Michel I woulda pulled conversation in several other directions, but at least they're thinking & talking abt something of substance.

Filmed by Luis Bunuel in Mexico, the film takes religious text of bible, and shows it when worshiped as truth. It could've showed the more genocidal and hellish acts depicted as "good deeds", but instead it brings the parts that make the bible (or more the worshipers) a laughing stock. It's much more than a mockery though. It's a story of obsession, spirituality, and self inflicted misery. The film has been overshadowed over the years, but I encourage a watch of this satire. It left a surreal feeling on me, it's a great perspective on excessive spirituality.
