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>

I'm buying it. Lovee.
22 March 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I absolutely loved this movie. It's one of those I wanted to go back and see again the next day. Definitely buying it (and I don't like many movies enough to buy them).

I like that it has tonnes of effective symbolism (would make a GREAT film for a film study) and I love the western/samurai cross. Finally a movie with the right amount of gore! It's so hard to find a movie with the right amount of gore. It's exciting without going overboard. I really liked the ending as well.

Although the sword action could've been better visually; it was accurate. The story line a little predictable (but, really, what HASN'T been done already but easy enough to follow.

I would recommend this a movie to watch alone or with your someone. The balance between passion and action is perfect.
