With World War 2 looming, a prominent family in China must confront the contrasting ideas of traditionalism, communism and Western thinking, while dealing with the most important ideal of all: love and its meaning in society.
Jack is a wanderer whose aimless roaming leads him to a number of interesting locations and into the company of many interesting people, and despite his fascination with bullfighting he leads a largely peaceful existence. When a crime boss' daughter is accidentally gored to death, Jack is implicated in the unfortunate event and singled out for termination by a seemingly unending army of lethal hitmen. As Jack wages an uphill battle for survival against the harsh desert terrain and a hail of gun smoke and lead, his will to live depends on his ability to exercise his demons and come to terms with the fact that he may not live to see another sunrise.

I rented this movie due to Robert Rodriquez, Willem Dafoe and Michael Parks being involved. I thought that with these 3 in it that I would be watching a good film...Wrong!!!! Like another review said the first 5 minutes start out alright then it just goes on to be a bunch of incoherent scenes. Michelle Forbes is terrible (as usual). And the camera work and editing was some of the worst I've seen in as long as I can remember. Rodriguez and co must have owed someone some favours by agreeing to appear in this mess of a film. This has got to be the worst movie I've seen since Boogeyman. (and Boogeyman was so boring I thought I was going to go nuts watching it!)
