Two thumbs down
20 December 1999 | by (Auckland, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. A boy (Moeller) was supposed to take revenge for his father, in order to do so he had to master sword fighting and so on. Here come the dumb parts, he couldn't do sword fighting, but he taught some other boy to do it. Next dumb thing, he always got hurt even he didn't fight that much, he got hurt twice in the movie! Last dumb thing which is the dumbest, he got hurt by arrow while making love. Hey, a warrior was supposed to be good, especially after that sort of training from the master himself! He was supposed to be aware of his surroundings even if he was in the middle of a steamy affair. This movie is not worth seeing, it's wasting your money.
