Trivia

According to Keith Calder, this movie is heavily influenced by the look and style of classic Hollywood musicals except that the singing and dancing are replaced with physical combat sequences that evoke Gene Kelly by way of Bloodsport (1988). See more »

Goofs

When shooting the burning arrow, we see Yoshi's finger wrapped around it. This would not work in reality, as not only would the arrow go entirely it's own way without any control, but it would also cause friction burns, and probably cuts, on the finger. That is a mistake one makes only once. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
The Narrator: Long before the dawn of man, strife was already a major component of life. Wherever a creature shared a piece of land with another, it was just a matter of time until a struggle for resources would ensue. Man was no different, showcasing a perverse fascination with violence. Man and civilization brought forth more innovative ways of taking human life than any other function needed for survival. There are more ways of killing a man than there are ways of making bread or making love....

easy to swallow
2 December 2011 | by lpiploviSee all my reviews

Quite an interesting movie,set in kind of an origami environment which is quite unique,has some shiny action moments.......a movie which in my honest opinion had some exquisite potential but got ruined by poorly written scenario,typecast roles for actors that could present much more. Watchable but don't expect some Oscar movie going around....

It may disappoint you or you may even like it.Actors like Woody Harrelson,Demi Moore,hell even Josh Hartnett could give a lot more if properly stimulated with a good screenplay...yet they give them cheesy roles like these.Maybe the idea here was to go with the cheesy but in the end - mediocre with a hint of originality.
