Classic Chinese Swords Movie
23 February 2008 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

There are some movies that stick by you over the years and this Chinese swords movie from the middle sixties is one of them.

King Hu's Dragon Gate Inn has all the ingredients in it to make this movie a classic. Not only does it have good swords fights and combines these with an excellent story and plot but on a more subtle level the background music adds a really good atmosphere to it that draws you even more into the movie and story.

I can recommend this movie for anyone who is interested in Chinese film in general and anyone who is interested in Chinese swords movies with a good story and plot.

10 out of 10 points from me.
