Name of Chinese movie about magic/kung fu

The movie is definitely Chinese.. and had a spirit magic theme, and I think there was kung-fu.

The one scene that I remember is where there is a magician/fighter who writes chinese characters on the palm of his hand with a calligraphy brush mid-fight, and then uses these symbols to 'freeze' his opponents.

Any ideas?

In Chinese Ghost Story 2, from what I gather, he writes something on his palm to freeze (people/ghosts?).

Is that it?
yes, brilliant, thanks!  Just looked it up on youtube and that's the one I remember.  Thanks again!
