Great martial arts flick
28 December 1999 | by lewy-2See all my reviews

Grim, fatalistic story of a young man kidnapped from his father and then raised to assassinate him. The film is colored with a sense of melancholy that permeates the story and its subplots, from the inevitable love interest to the final bloody resolution, to the beautiful cinematography.
