In this period martial-arts drama that is as much noirish mystery as it is a stylized kung-fu epic, a man living a quiet rural life intervenes in a robbery and reveals that he has some extraordinary capabilities. Not exactly the most original story, but absorbing nonetheless, with terrific action and moments of surprising humanity.
