Personal Thought: It’s the future. People are on Hover boards, Mobile Phones are at your finger tips, no really they are! This film is filled with wire work and CGI effects which is some times on the good side and the bad.

Apart from the young there is two classic actors included Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao!
