Storyline

North of the vast 8th century Tang dynasty Chinese empire, the commercially and culturally priceless silk route is controlled by 36 friendly Buddhist kingdoms. Their are threatened by Turkic nomad tribes, the caravans also by brigand bands. Japanese scholar Lai Qimay not return home until the emperor is satisfied with his missions to retrieve refugees from the barren border lands. The last is competent imperial lieutenant Li, who was proscribed for refusing to execute Turkic prisoners. He now lives among fellow warriors for hire as caravan escorts. Lai Qi and Li reach a gentleman's agreement to postpone their lethal duel till after the safe arrival of a caravan including a young Buddhist monk and his mysterious freight. When Turkic warlord Khan's daughter's hand seals an alliance with brigand sword master An, the only way out is trough the grimly dry Gobi desert. Written by KGF Vissers

Awesome movie should be seen by everyone
21 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was just awesome but like any other movie there is always that part of it that you wish was in it. I think the whole movie runs really well and flows wonderfully.

I will have to admit that I though after viewing the trailer that it was gonna be like other movies that I have seen recently from Japan. But was wonderfully surprised when it wasn't. The CGI part in the middle of the film looked awesome and was a good idea but it does throw you for a loop considering how the film went. The end was a let down to me but I won't say anything about it since I do believe that if people like this type of film they should see it. The colors are't nearly as bright as let say Hero but don't let it detour you from seeing. It is an awesome film and should be seen by anyone who likes these types of film.
