We do actually tend to really enjoy Asian cinema. It's something about the way they create atmosphere, and the stunning scenery and the beautiful soundtracks, which really outdid themselves in this picture actually. I just find them incredibly likable, However.
Even though this was meant to be a martial arts movie, you saw very little of the actual art. Just a lot of quick camera movements that were meant to imply that there was some amazing swordplay, but you never actually saw it happen. Or the fact that even though from the Cars and Trains that are visible in the film it is safe to assume this film was meant to be set in the early twentieth century, and yet many of the male characters walk around in very 'Matrix' style trench coats to add to their menacing look.
We think it had a very well played out story line and nice well developed characters but it was the little things that let it down.
