A very well made film
20 February 1999 | by See all my reviews

Ever see the first 30 seconds of a film, and know you are going to like it? This film did it for me.

There's two things that grab you about the film even from the opening scenes, there is above average photography and an excellent film score.

Almost ever scene is well shot, and is a beautiful scene on its own. And the music matches it just perfectly and intensifies the mood.

Michael Biehn can act well, which is a big plus. The only downside to the film is Joong-Hoon Park's slightly below average English skills, which takes a lot away from the movie in the scenes where his dialogue is important to the plot twists. Other than that, this film gets high marks in my book. I'll be looking for it on video or Dvd.

All I want to know is what happened with the white lotus guy at the end of the film??
