Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: Why does the wind come? To cover tracks where we have passed... so no one thinks we are still alive. It was long ago and no one can remember now how the Warriors of Light and the Warriors of Darkness clashed on the Bridge of Justice... how blood was spilled... how the great Jassar's heart could not bear it and he stopped the battle.

North American Viewers - watch the first movie before you see this one
24 June 2007 | by ravingelfSee all my reviews

I saw a review for this movie from a critic and the plot seemed very interesting - so I decided to go to a screening expecting something good. Well, the visuals were amazing, no doubt in that, but the story...

So I read these boards, hoping to find some answers, but apparently all the answers are in the first movie: which isn't very helpful when I just paid to go see the sequel.

I've read some of the reviews, but it seems everyone is all hyped up about this film - the exact opposite of what I've experienced. The first 10 minutes I thought were good, they sort've outlined what was going on - and then it crashed and burned into a twisted entropy of randomness (which I am guessing was explained in the first movie).

The problem I have is that the story didn't help anyone who didn't see the first movie - which is a bit humorous because no where did I see to go see the first movie before watching this movie - or at least a plot explanation in the introduction. Especially since I thought this was a stand-alone movie, but was sorely mistaken.

So all in all, I guess the point of this comment is that if you live in North America - go see the first movie before seeing this one - otherwise, if you like staring at the movie screen bewildered while your mind tries to figure out what happened 10 scenes ago - then by all means, go to this movie without seeing the first one.
