Simply put : The best fantasy movie I've seen.
29 April 2010 | by iwolfiSee all my reviews

This is not gonna be a long and well written review, I'm sorry.

But i will tell you why I loved it and why you might love it.

First of, I love these Asian fantasy movies for many reasons. They are mostly set in a world unheard of in other places, and the story something very different than any Hollywood movie.

Before seeing the movie, I actually came across the soundtrack made by Shiro Sagisu. (Who also made the music for Casshern). And I came to the conclusion that it was the best soundtrack made by his hands.

Then came the chance to see the movie. And i hadn't seen much from it before, except a couple of trailers. And with it being in Korean and with no subs i only got the standard plot.

Hero loves woman. Woman is in trouble. Evil man makes threats. Hero saves the day?

But after 20 minutes I was already gladly surprised of the plot. Something "I" had not seen before. And I'm not gonna tell you what it was, since i think the surprise makes the movie even better. The movie is filled with amazing scenery and visuals that couldn't be much better. It's not over packed with fights. But the fights there do count.

There is a bit of "flying/floating" martial arts as in almost every classic Kung fu movie. And even though i don't care much for that, it did seam to fit the movie.

Will it fall in your taste?

Have you seen Casshern or Goemon? If so, and they pleased you. I don't see why you should not at least enjoy it, if not love it as i did. It has very similar elements and feeling to it. (still not as dark as Casshern).

I would have given this movie a 10/10, but went with 9/10 for two reasons. 1. That given it a max will feel a bit to cliché and would make people expect it to be polished with gold. 2. One of the main characters, (The damsel in distress) was kinda annoying at times and looked like she was gonna cry every second. But then again its all about the cruelty and emotion they try to express in these movies.

pewww!. . .

Sorry it got a bit longer than i had planed. Hope you forgive me for the bad grammar and enjoy the movie if you decide to watch it. Have fun.
