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>

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.

Finally, the action film I've been waiting for.
6 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen a lot of movies. It is difficult for action movies to be thoroughly gripping for me since I have seen so many over the years. I am a filmmaker and I have a lot of respect for all films because it can be so challenging to make a film. As De Niro said, it's just as difficult to make a bad movie as it is to make a good one. This is the film that I have been waiting for. The cinematography is beautiful and all but perfect. The action is satisfying and jaw dropping without being unnecessarily ridiculous and gory. It has high values too about protecting those who are dearest to us who cannot protect themselves from the negative forces in the world. With some similar elements, where Ninja Assassin got things wrong this movie got right. Anybody who isn't sure should give this movie a chance. It is not non-stop action, but see this movie before it leaves the theatres.
