    An intriguing story. Nicely written although there are many Asian cross cultural issues. A very nice first effort though! Keep them coming.

  2. Okay the movie is great and i liked it as for the voting part i think he should trust his instincts and do wat he was taught best to do. next time i thnk we should add more of charisma n lots of uniq stunts and skills unlike the basic karate chop kicks and flyng kicks
