The Flag of Iron

The Flag of Iron ★★★

Starting to think I watched some butchered cut of this, as the runtime on my DVD was 84 minutes, a far cry from the 113 advertised. Enjoyable martial arts film with your typical needlessly complicated plot. Loved the creative use of weapons (a spear that shoots out a smaller spear from the tip? Hell yeah.) and wild action, it somehow managed to make flags into a sick tool of stylish action. It’s hardly the best or most creative martial arts film, but it was decent enough, and would highly recommend it to all my flag enthusiasts out there.
