Critic Reviews of "Rise Of The Legend"New York TimesMarch 11, 2016
The blending of vast sets and digital effects is not quite seamless in Chow Hin Yeung's kung fu period extravaganza "Rise of the Legend," but it's close.Los Angeles TimesMarch 10, 2016
A stylish, rousing throwback epic, telling the fictionalized story of Wong as a young man, circa 1868.Village VoiceMarch 08, 2016
Rise of the Legend's jumble of backstories, flashbacks, and betrayals can't hope to carry the same weight as its punches.Hollywood ReporterMarch 08, 2016
Chow and To don't tinker with the lore's DNA too much, but fortunately they have Peng to freshen it up, and even the specter of Li does little to detract from his emerging star power.Examiner.comMarch 13, 2016
Rise of the Legend has some breathtaking action sequences and can boast how strong both Eddie Peng and Sammo Hung are in their roles, but dilutes itself with overacting and long stretches of unbearably emotional theatrics.ReelTalk Movie ReviewsMarch 13, 2016
Too many flashbacks and repetitive fight scenes almost overpower Eddie Peng's fine performance.Film Journal InternationalMarch 09, 2016
Martial-arts movies don't have to be so simplistic and humorless.The Straits Times (Singapore)March 08, 2016
Taiwanese heart-throb Peng is certainly well cast as the slicker and more hunky Wong -- his signature bad-boy smirk is always at the ready and his famous abs are, gasp, on full display in several scenes.Screen InternationalMarch 08, 2016
Despite the lack of innovation in the narrative, Chow has delivered a slick and polished production that holds the attention and satisfies far more convincingly than either of the writer and director's previous collaborations.
