Captivating tale
4 August 2002 | by InzyWimzySee all my reviews

This film from mainland China tells of the story of a young boy and his journey. This one had me so caught up me from beginning to end.

The main theme here is appearances. Life in life, not everything is as it seems. The main character Hai Ge goes through a metamorphosis. He seems nervous and unsure about himself, but there's something brave and determined about him that makes him very likeable. As a son of a renowned swordsman, he is quickly dismissed by the townspoeple due to his young age and inexperience. As the story progresses, viewpoints change (as well as my own) and I kept wondering what was going to happen next. Director Ping He's use of pacing creates suspense in the movie and shows you don't haveto rely on gratuitous violence to make a film enjoyable.

The story is simple, but effectively told. The characters are memorable from Hai Ge, the barkeeper, his daughter, and the Lethal Swordsman who gives a great performance and was a great villain (watch that lethal stroke!). The finale is well done and is not necessarily your typical 'happy' ending. Another reason why I liked it.
