An unusual mix of swordplay and gunfighting.
11 March 2000 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie is probably the first of its kind. Remembering the timeline that these two genres are set. I was in for a big surprise. Amazingly, the two genres of swordfighting and John Woo-type gunfights seemed to work together. For people who like both genres, this movie's for you. Because there's plenty of action in this movie, with the sword, or with the gun. There's also plenty of hilarious characters in the movie, like Robert Parkinson, the computer hacker, who needs to suck on a dummy or anything in the shape and form of a nipple, or otherwise he goes berserk. This is in total, a funny and good action movie!
