di­rec­tor Hark Tsui ( Once Upon a Time in China) gets car­ried away with ef­fects and 3D film mak­ing with this loose up­dat­ing of an­other of his clas­sics and the re­sults are a mixed bag of fever­ish ac­tion and over­worked plot­ting. You’ll need to pay close at­ten­tion to the de­tails here with the story about evil eu­nuchs and rebel war­riors fight­ing it out at an out- of- way inn to find a buried trea­sure con­vo­luted and drip­ping in de­tails. The ac­tion is well chore­ographed and thank­fully var­ied but all the stuff fly­ing at the screen is ma­jorly dis­tract­ing.
