    Doesn’t sound a very original movie, haven’t they done that concept a million times in Chinese films?

      Yeah. This film will use a more scientific way to explain Chinese martial arts though, which I’m not really fond of. These Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon type of kungfu are nothing more than fantasy imo, no point over-dissecting it.
