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.

Andy Webster, New York Times, 2016-03-11

 

A stylish, rousing throwback epic, telling the fictionalized story of Wong as a young man, circa 1868.

Noel Murray, Los Angeles Times, 2016-03-10

 

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.

Elizabeth Kerr, Hollywood Reporter, 2016-03-08

 

Rise of the Legend's jumble of backstories, flashbacks, and betrayals can't hope to carry the same weight as its punches.

Michael Nordine, Village Voice, 2016-03-08
