    The movie despite the low rating (4.3) is an enjoyable watch.
    You get to see a bit of Abu Dhabi, which is where the story takes place.
    The drama and comedy is quite good and the dialogues are witty.
    Good for a quiet afternoon watch.

    Action / Fantasy.

    Made in China. Highly recommended for the action scenes (just my opinion).

    I tuned in mid way into the movie, so no idea what they were fighting about.
    It reminds you of Ip Man, The Matrix and other movies, but all in all, very good cinematography.
    Have a look at the trailer on imdb. The female actor unfortunately doesn't seem to have done any more movies. ;-(

    I'd come across this movie many a time. Finally managed to watch it.
    Amazing filmmaking and acting. The long monologues/dialogues filled with wit and wisdom and done in a single shot are truly captivating.
