Storyline

Yang, the world's finest swordsman, packs it in and leaves Japan to find an old friend in the Wild West rather than kill the infant queen of a rival clan. He carries the baby to his friend's desolate, broken-down town; the friend has died, so Yang reopens a laundry and settles down, hanging wet clothes, growing flowers, raising the infant, and finding himself attracted to Lynne, a red-haired woman with a tragic past. As long as Yang keeps his sword sheathed, his rivals won't find him, but a band of reprobate gunmen terrorize the town and threaten Lynne. Showdowns are inevitable, but once the sword is drawn, can Yang find rest, a home, and a family? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

[first lines]
Ronald: Okay, you settled down? You got your ears open?
[clears throat]
Ronald: This is the story of the sad flute, a laughing baby, a weeping sword. A long long time ago, in a land far far away, there lived a warrior. A warrior with empty eyes.

One word to describe this movie is WOW
24 March 2015 | by djkoombayaSee all my reviews

I am so late in watching this movie - had never heard of it before - but I came across the trailer of it in you-tube last night and had to watch it. This movie has a great balance between cowboy/samurai - great character development, great story telling, very good actors (some were over the top but in a good way), and some of the best choreography that I have seen in a very long time. And the music score was very well played in the background bringing just the right tone to every scene.

A must see for people that want to see something different - I enjoyed it very much and look forward to watching it again. And the ending leaves us with the opportunity for a sequel...I truly hope that comes to life because I would be the first in line!
