Watch True Legend Full Movie Free Online
Somewhat less impressive is its occasional overreliance on CGI effects, both for the backgrounds, and to enhance the fight scenes, when perhaps some old school wire might have worked better. Although this is not pushed to the point of overload, as with the Pang Brothers' recent "The Storm Warriors", it does disconnect the viewer from the proceedings at times. Whilst the film is surprisingly violent and gory in places, the use of computer blood also detracts a little from the impact, though thankfully there are still more than enough traditional fight scenes to compensate, and the film does have more of a visceral impact than most other modern martial arts costume epics.
All of the cast are on great form, with Vincent Zhao doing a good job in the lead, with his Beggar Su benefitting from not being too white washed, making his journey to true hero all the more rewarding. Andy On also deserves special mention for his bizarre performance as the villain, done up in ghoulishly pale makeup, having armour sewn into his skin, and training by putting his hands in bowls of snakes and scorpions. The appearance of David Carradine (who sadly passed away during post-production) is very welcome, as he adds a touch of class to all of his scenes, and is immeasurably better than the usual western non-actors who tend to turn up in Asian films.
"True Legend" certainly is a cut above in general, and is definitely one of the better martial arts epics of the last few years. Although a bit too close to "Fearless" in places and featuring a little too much in the way of CGI, it entertains throughout, and makes for fun, exciting viewing.
