Storyline

Yang, the world's finest swordsman, packs it in and leaves Japan to find an old friend in the Wild West rather than kill the infant queen of a rival clan. He carries the baby to his friend's desolate, broken-down town; the friend has died, so Yang reopens a laundry and settles down, hanging wet clothes, growing flowers, raising the infant, and finding himself attracted to Lynne, a red-haired woman with a tragic past. As long as Yang keeps his sword sheathed, his rivals won't find him, but a band of reprobate gunmen terrorize the town and threaten Lynne. Showdowns are inevitable, but once the sword is drawn, can Yang find rest, a home, and a family? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Quotes

[first lines]
Ronald: Okay, you settled down? You got your ears open?
[clears throat]
Ronald: This is the story of the sad flute, a laughing baby, a weeping sword. A long long time ago, in a land far far away, there lived a warrior. A warrior with empty eyes.

Geoffrey Rush Can Never Make a Bad Movie
5 December 2010 | by (Arkansas) – See all my reviews

What do you get when you take 'Unforgiven' and 'Ninja Assassin' and the world's greatest actor (Geoffrey Rush) and put them together? An awesome movie!!!

A young warrior seeks to be the greatest swordsman ever, but refuses to kill the baby he is ordered to kill. He takes the baby to the American Wild West and hides among a group of struggling circus performers and a drunk ex-bank robber. Cowboys want revenge on the woman in the town and the clan wants the warrior dead and the battle begins as they all end up in the town at the same time. There are a few graphic scenes, but not as much as other Martial Arts movies like Kill Bill or Ninja Assassin. Geoffrey Rush (Ronald, the drunk ex-robber) is an awesome actor who gave a great performance with some doses of humor! He is NOT capable of making a lousy movie. He did an awesome job.

The storyline was great and the acting of all was excellent. There was suspense, humor, sadness, and love. The R rating is well-earned, as this is NOT for younger audiences.

Now... go see this... right now. Run... don't walk to go get this movie now.

What... you're still here...???
