    this movie was average,dont see the point in a remake.The only reason it kicked ass was because of the fighting scenes with Yuen Biao and Yueh Wah.

  2. I thought the original one was quite enjoyable. A bit predictable, but enjoyable.

      I watched the original for the first time myself a few months ago. Surprising that I hadn’t seen it yet considering it’s one of Yuen Biao’s most popular efforts. It basically felt like a Hong Kong riff on “Highlander,” with two time-displaced warriors duking it out in modern times. I thought too much screentime was eaten up by lame comedy involving Yuen’s character adjusting to 80′s-era Hong Kong, but the final fight between him and Yuen Wah was indeed excellent.

    Its good to remark it with new graphics and 3d but I think it should be shoot in the us like they are taken to a research lab in usa and examined in china town to a make a change from yuen biao’s own

    I think my skepticism is beginning to loosen up… Hopefully, there won’t be too much wirework in Donnie’s choreography.

    Donnie Yen is running out of ideas, that’s why he remaking Iceman Cometh. I’m not looking forward to it. Yuen Biao’s version is fine the way it is, and it’s a good introduction to him for those who don’t know the guy. He’s the leading man for once, and he’s not in the shadow of Sammo and Jackie. When I first saw Iceman Cometh, I enjoyed it very much. The story is original, and it’s not another story about Wong Fei Hung or Fok Yuen Gap. It’s a must have for Yuen Biao fans. Going back to Donnie lol. Can you imagine if he remade Once Upon A Time in China and he played Fei Hung? Totally not cool.

    • DiP says:

      Remakes are getting common in Hong Kong/China by big production companies so it has nothing to do with Donnie’s own ideas. Besides, have you read the latest news on Donnie projects? Those are way more promising and original.

      • vietcutieboy says:

        It’s just like US remaking superman, batman, spiderman, robocop…..etc. Hong Kong/China does the same.

    Guys, I really do not think we should wait it to be just copied and wrapped into a modern fashion wrapping)))) that’s a new approach, good is never too much, it seems Donnie cherishes the efforts of the predecessors and wants to keep the tradition, why not? Let the man work. Think what we gonna “enjoy” when Donnie Yen retires! we gonna watch comics!

  7. Tien Kwon says:

    the problem with bringing back old flames is that so many filmmakers are doing that. there is always new talents, so after donnie retires we can watch those new action stars lol.

    the new poster sure gave me a scare haha.

  8. Theresa Butler says:

    Donnie Yen is a blessing, and the whole Asian geographic land mass should see him as such, as well as the whole world. Mr. Yen has entertained us with his creativity, art, talent, common sense, blood, sweat and tears, and deserves our utmost respect as well as every penny, yen or any other monies he has EARNED. He never will run out of ideas, as this man is a detailed thinker and it shows in his productions. His free spirit soars beyond this generation’s expectations, and Mr. Yen is proof that where there’s a will, there’s a way!

  9. DragonLord says:

    STOP HATING ON DONNIE YEN, JUST BECAUSE THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS THAT DONNIE FIGHTS BETTER THAN JET LI , JACKIE CHAN AND EVEN BRUCE LEE. YOU HATERS MUST ALWAYS FIND SOMETHING BAD TO SAY ABOUT DONNIE. IF YOU HAD TO BET A BILLION DOLLARS ON A FIGHT BETWEEN DONNIE YEN AND JET LI, EVERY ONE WOULD BET ON DONNIE YEN, BECAUSE NOBODY WOULD RISK THAT KIND OF MONEY ON A LONGSHOT LIKE JET LI EVER BEATING THE LAST DRAGON DONNIE YEN. NOW THAT IS HOW YOU MEASURE WHO’S THE BEST FIGHTER BETWEEN THEM.

  10. JJ Hatfield says:

    Once I realized Yuen Biao and Maggie Chung had not been in a remake of O’neils play I proceeded to watch the movie and after seeing the first fight between Biao and Wah I wanted to see more! That was a lot of years ago and it still holds up – Yuen Biao and Yuen Wah are amazing and the fights cannot be duplicated and any attempt to do so would fail miserably. Every top level martial artist/fighter can do most everything any other can but they all have specialties, and of course they all have some ardent fans. Trying to make one fighter appear to be someone else is a big mistake. Biao has his own incredible talents that are different from Wah’s that are different than Donnie. I’m quite sure Donnie will be filmed very differently than back in ’89.
    The original with Yuen Biao was great because of the fights with Yuen Wah, These two
    made for some intense matches. It will be interesting to see how they expand the story to stretch it from 90 minutes or so into two full movies. Perhaps more background from the time/place they came? Expanded relationship with Maggie Chung character? More time (or less)with the Wah character? Maybe they return to their time but come back? No matter what the fans will no doubt be pleased! I’m sure Donnie’s version will be interesting!(especially in 3D)

  11. Andy says:

    Hmmm, I don’t know, Special ID was crap, sorry I love Donnie, big fan but that was terrible. Maybe its just me but this doesn’t look to look either, fantasy, wire-fu, modern action. I’ll wait for reviews before buying the BD when it comes out. What are your thoughts?

  12. andy says:

    on trailer we can see how the movies works…i dont think this film will be great for Donny carier and Big Fun….style of the martial art is boring and the character is uninteresting…
