  • "If you like Ong Bak, B13 District, and old Shaw Brothers films, you should be pretty entertained by Germany's first martial arts film ... this movie was awesome!",
  • "... what it does well it does very well ...the core of what makes the film work are the two leads, Mathis Landwehr and Volkram Zschiesche ... not only do the pair look great on screen and have an easy, natural rapport throughout, both are very talented martial artists who thoroughly impress when given the chance to shine.",
  • " ... very impressive action scenes that compete well with the recent crop of martial arts releases ... the film is not an action movie that happens to feature martial arts but is a pure kung fu film.", Wasted Time
