Swords, ninjas etc
24 June 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Wicked wicked film, if only for the last 20 minutes or so. I really enjoyed this film in parts, it did drag at some points and some parts the film could have done without (The par with the old master and the white cockatoo bird for instance) but as soon as it would feel as if it was getting slightly monotonous there would be a fight scene to liven things up again. Good casting of the main characters and excellent swordplay. I'm not a big fun of wire work in martial arts films but this was done well and was entertaining to watch, pure fantasy and an exciting ending. Are there any other films similar to this worth watching?.
