Storyline

At first, four swordsmen hired to bring back a runaway concubine appear to be competent mercenaries, but soon prove themselves to be a bunch of incompetent buffoons. Their leader, Yae-rang, only has one fighting stance: to drop his sword, make faces at the enemy and pinch his own nipples. Yo-i, is just as idiotic, but at least has a touch of humanity as he works as a mercenary only to earn money for his kid sister. The four take the concubine and her lover into custody, but also accidentally manage to somehow ruin the chance for the ghosts of five murdered courtesans to ascend to heaven. The warriors agree to kill the man responsible which will set the ghosts free, but they must be taught a few tricks by the ghosts as their existing martial arts skills are nearly useless.

Crazy Assassins, Romantic Warriors
10 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is great. I went into this film not knowing what to expect. I mean the only thing I knew was that it was Korean and that it was a comedy costume/period piece. Judging from the cover...

I found this movie absolutely hilarious. Basically you have these 4 warriors/assassins, who just really sort of suck at what they do. While on a mission they run into an abandoned house, which happens to be haunted by the ghosts of four beautiful ghosts. The story then starts to revolve around their quest to help the ghosts seek revenge.

Laughs all around. The funniest part about this film was how quickly it would just pull your emotions all over the place. One moment you're laughing, the next you are in tears (and not from the laughing). I definitely think this is one to see if you are looking for something different, and you will be in for a crazy ride.
