Awful, Awful Picture
16 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was so bad that I was mesmerized by its total lack of value. I could not believe that any honest effort in art could produce such a mess, and I decided not turn it off until it showed SOME merit. So, I saw some silly fight scenes, like you'd expect from an Asian version of the Three Stooges. And the story line was something that you'd get if I translated a Chinese script, myself, then shuffled the pages, like a deck of cards. Something about a man avenging his family's murder. He comes back to kill the clan that did it, and the army mostly stands around and allows him to fight them one man at a time. The fight scenes were hilariously too-long, and the man would get shot by an arrow, put some cream on it, and he'd get up like nothing's wrong. This was Awful, in my opinion.
