LEGEND OF GINGKO (or GINGKO BED 2 as it's sometimes called, although the two movies have little ties) could have been a really good movie. Instead it's just a good movie. The film loses some points for not knowing what it wants to be. As a period adventure film, the movie gets points for offering up some brutal combat. But the whole thing goes out the window when magic and supernatural elements come into play. Some minor supernatural elements ala CONAN would not have deterred from the movie's greatness, but there's simply too much special effects in a movie that really didn't need it.
