commentary
5 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's the best strategy film I've seen, except perhaps "The Godfather - trilogy" and it's in many ways similar to the game "Shogun", only this one it's a lot more personal, making you reflect at the never-ending complexity of life.

There are some improbable twists in the movie,but those give it a more personal touch and after all,without those turns, the movie would be plain sad.

The "Art of war" at home, where it was first elaborated and applied - magnificent.

You should definitely see this one.
