Actually, I quite liked it.
31 August 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I got this film knowing very little about it. All I knew was that it was a swashbuckling farce and that it seemed to have split viewers. So, with that in mind I watched it. After an extremely harsh opening, the tale opens out into a fairly lighthearted romp, full of smutty jokes and single entendres. You'll never look at candles the same way again, I can tell you!

The film is in no ways perfect, but as a piece of light relief it doesn't overstay it's welcome and cheered me up when I had a heavy dose of Flu. The relationship between the characters is a little blurred to start with, but if you have a brain and can concentrate you'll not have much problem with the movie. The fight scenes are also quite interesting. Rather than follow the modern convention of tightly edited shots and HK influenced camerawork you get a fairly documentary approach. I found this quite refreshing.

Overall, not bad. Not great, but worth a watch.
