[Opening Lines: Praying with his forehead on his sword's hilt]
Almighty God, in my hour of need, be with me. Let me never forget my sacred and holy vows unto Thee. That I should not be prey unto demons and devils, and all the dark things of this world. Honor me with the arm of Thy Righteousness. Give me the Sword of Truth that I shall confound Thine enemies, and be unto Thee: a True Knight.

I am voting this 10, as I found it very entertaining, and can't believe how negative the reviewers are here. I watch a lot of Asian drama, subtitled, and I was thrilled to see an attempt to bridge the gap this way. When you watch subtitled drama, you soon find out that the bilingual Western actors are embarrassingly bad. It was a joy to have the movie all in English, with all the things I love most about Asian cinema...great direction, cinematography, action, and pacing. Never a dull moment. Cage was unnecessary,except as an attention-getting name. As for the literally-minded out there...go watch a documentary. Suspending disbelief is a necessary talent when watching drama. You get to focus on other things. My only complaint is I would have enjoyed more martial arts by some of the talented cast. More please!
