This is wonderful fantasy action cinema. For those familiar with this particular Asian style of martial arts fantasy epic this is one of the better ones.
It kind of goes without saying that this is bound to be a beautiful looking film, the standard in cinematography with this type of film in Korea is now very high, and it has a very similar effect on Koreans (and oriental enthusiasts alike) as Hollywood's blockbusters do on Americans; in that their formula's they use to wow a crowd are parallel. So anyone who's a fan of Korea's pop culture should put this on the to see list.
Its very much a love story at heart, and if ever there was a new take on a love story this is it. Underneath the ever exciting high flying ass kicking, real emotions exude from the lead actors, especially the lady who is a rising star and an excellent actor. Keep your mind open and submerse yourself in the world of the restless.
