Very good
14 October 2007 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

Well, it is not the greatest martial arts movie but it is still very good. It was a legend 20 years ago here in Bulgaria. There is a reason for that. The movie is good. The story is very good - it is about the life of Ueshiba - the founder of aikido. We can see how he decided to develop aikido and how he did it. We can see why he developed aikido, where he has learnt martial arts... Anything.

The acting is pretty good. Really. I think there are only martial artists instead of actors here but they are very good. The guy who played Ueshiba was too tall but that is not a problem.

And the fights... First I will tell you something about the camera working. It is not very good. It is not as bad as that in "Way if the Dragon" but it is not great. But the fight choreography is pretty GREAT. Really. If you watch the movie for the fights you will not be disappointed.
