You Won't Believe It!!!
20 July 2003 | by (L.A. CA) – See all my reviews

This movie is amazing. If you like wild, sword-fighting, beautiful women, violence all wrapped around an ancient fable - then this movie is for you. It is so out there - yes, the sub-titled version I viewed was pretty bad - so it was hard to follow the "story" but it doesnt matter - everyone is after the legendary swordsman with "Heaven's Sword" but the action sequences are stunning and there are images and special effects in this movie that put most comic books and all Hollywood action movies to shame. Guilty, messy fun!!!
