The purpose of a sword
16 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It takes a bit of patience to get into this movie mainly because of the way it flowed and because the editing wasn't done very well. And sometimes seemed over the place a bit at times, but it's still a good movie and a well shown story. This isn't a mindless sword fighting movie but there is some actual meat in the story. This movie is based on a true story that has historical characters in it, but I am not sure how much is accurate. Especially because it has some fantasy like elements in it sometimes and comes off a bit fairy tale like...Well not entirely though. The plot mostly revolves around a man who is a bounty hunter, but falls deeply in love with a person that is soon to be the queen of Joseon Dynasty. She is a open minded queen that didn't mind building ties with other foreign nations, especially with Russia in order to stop Japanese influence. Since japan at the time tried to oppress and meddle in the affairs of Korea constantly. So there is some politics and rebellion going on inside and out. And while this is going on the man that fell for the queen doesn't give up his devotion to her and tries his best to protect her no matter what. This is a movie that probably won't grab the attention of the audience right off the bat, but as it progresses you will get more invested in it. If the development of the story and editing was a bit better this movie would have been great. If your looking for a bright and happy romance movie this won't be for you. But what is brings out is emotional and heart-wrenching story with great actresses and actors.

8/10
