Divine Weapon is entertaining from the beginning to the end
25 April 2009 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Shin ge jeon includes all that i am looking for at a historical epic Asian movie.

Greate costumes, evil generals, a lot of sword fight, a hero and a few interesting historical details. Also of course great landscape pictures and battle scenes with fire and explosions :).

It is for sure not the best Asian movie ever. And there is no compare with high end martial arts movies like Tiger and Dragon or Hero.

All fighting scenes are made more realistic then in the most other movies from that genre. If you like to see warriors flying all the time and a hero who can kill 100 men with a stick in less then a minute, then this is the wrong movie for you.

If you like historical Asian movies in the stile of "a small country is trying to defend it self against an empire" then you surly will enjoy it.

The movie includes a bit to much different characters. At the end of the movie i lost it completely who were all that guys which are died with great heroism :).

Also the love story, which seems to be essential in such movies, was not as disturbing as normal.
