Hmm. But not real wuxia.

OK, back from wiki. I now know what wuxia means.

Year of the Dragon?

It was fucking awful. I knew it was considered controversial because of its depiction of the chinese-american community, but the real defaming was against the film making community.

Rourke may have resurrected his career in recent years but give this one from his back catalogue a miss.

I really wasn't expecting it to be as bad it was. It's one decent feature was that John Lone as the principal baddie was good. He had charisma in spades. Rourke was cheesy.
