Great action/drama film
20 July 2006 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

A bit simplistic but it's fast paced and well directed.

The CG scenes are stunning.

Music was wonderful.

And Yu Kashii was cute!!! Characters are a bit cardboard but this is an action film, for gods-sakes! A few plot holes of course, but nothing that can be ignored.

A bit vague at times, especially the ending, but I blame the translation from book to movie.

An excellent little movie if you want to turn your brain off a little - unlike American action films were you turn your brain _totally_ off.
