Second-tier Hong Kong director who has made plenty of films in the shadow of bigger names, but worked up a surprisingly solid oeuvre nonetheless. If you're looking to dig deeper into Hong Kong's commercial output, Yip's work is a good place to start.

Decent sequel to Law's Iceman. Donnie Yen reprises his role while this follow-up turns things upside down, warping the Ming warriors back to their own time in order to alter history. Some decent action scenes, some doubty CG, no time to get bored. It's not a bad film, but Wai Main Yip can do a lot better.
