I've just watched this movie and it's surprising to find its only get a 5.5 out of 10. I mean, come on, Saving General Yang deserves better! I went to this site to check the rating after I watched the movie and I expect it to get above 7, but after finding out that the rating was not even decent, I wonder if the people who rate it low truly watched the movie.
What's not to like about an epic tale of a legendary general, deceived by his devious comrade-in-arms, while a barbaric foe who hold a grudge against him ready to cut him in pieces, and his 7 sons, each with different personalities, risk their lives to save his father?
This movie has several memorable scenes, and some of them even gave me troubles to hold my tears. The fighting scenes were excellent. The only thing that keeps me from giving it a 10 is the ending, but overall, it's a joy to watch.
I highly recommend this movie!!!
