This is also the second time Michelle Yeoh and Eugenia Yuan share the silver screen. Yuan played Hatsumomo's friend Korin in Memoirs of a Geisha(2005), who helps her trick young Chiyo into destroying the kimono belonging to Mameha, played by Yeoh. See more »

Honor, duty, excuses for bloodshed. That is why I left it behind, all those years ago.

I didn't have high expectation going into this since I knew it would never live up to the the (perfect) prequel and after I watched the trailer my expectation was lowered even further.
The film is colored from start to finish like an Instagram filter with the colors all weird. In the opening scene I had to check if it actually was my setup that was the sinner - but unfortunately it wasn't. The scenery was also very lacking compared to the original and looked very fake because of CGI instead of real scenery.
The English speaking feels out of place and varies between the actors. Netflix did not allow me to use the Chinese dub which was added post filming.
The plot was very thin and the characters where bland and I did not feel a connection to any of them. The whole movie was centered around the fighting scene - which it had plenty of and some of them totally trivial, just for the sake of it. The fighting scenes were no where near as beautiful and artistic like the original.
