strange at the beginning but great story
6 February 2012 | by mortalthomasSee all my reviews

At first i thought it was some kind of Z-Movies with bad actors, but after i while, i got enticed with the story.

It looks more like theater actors than movie actors in my mind, but they conveyed the story greatly - i mean, the acting is not realistic like in real life, but more "played", but not too much like in theater.

And each time i thought the movie was ending, there was another turnaround. (i didn't check the movie's length :) )

Some fine sword fights to watch too, more in the stances than in the motions, but interesting enough.

Anyway, i think this movie if for those who love Asian movies, i think/fear that closed people will just mark it as "not enough American" for them.
