    so fast paced and fun to watch with an actual story, didnt feel like a marvel film at all. the cast worked really well together and the fight scenes were really well choreographed (very down to the heavy wuxia-inspired film). justice for tony Leung though, he was just a lonely single dad, worst villain ever because I instantly was on his side. Basically ‘in the mood for love’ but with super powers. also thought they could have spoken more Chinese and infused more Chinese culture into the film but I guess it is an American franchise
