The poster may seem abit like those old movie poster or some movie trying to be arty farty.. but its really a very good show. Its a massive production by Tsui Hark.. And I felt my ticket is really worth while if I paid $12.50 for it! The actors and actresses acted very well in the show.. especially the lead actor Zhang Hanyu 张涵予 and female actress Tong Liya 佟丽娅. And one thing I MUST MENTION is that I only came to know that the Mountain Eagle was actually Tony Leung Ka Fai 梁家辉.. He was so well-disguised into an old chap who was the most powerful bandit of all!

CATCH THE SHOW FROM 8 JAN 2015!
