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>

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.

atmospheric action

I regret watching this movie at home and not at the movie theater. these kind of movies are much more enjoyable specially on the big screen. The movie has a magic to it and atmosphere that is very well portrayed.

I loved the hero character being the " silent and deadly " type, it saved the script and boosted up the acting.

If you are into samurai and warrior's from the east and such I definitely recommend this movie, it successfully managed to combine swordsman skills with cowboy gun fights, which I never seen before. the movie is very stylish and they did a great job with the atmospheric effects.
