Awesome action and symbolism throughout the movie
19 January 2016 | by Brandon LeeSee all my reviews

Masterless is a tale of the battle of good vs. evil and the journey of faith that we all must personally come to grips with in our lives.

Masterless has a great balance of drama, humor, and action all rolled into one magnificent, well-told story. There are some fascinating ideas developed through the movie that keep you wondering about what the characters will do next.

Another amazing aspect of this film is that the spirit world was digitally created! Once you see the film, you will begin to understand how incredible that is. And I, as sort of a techie, really appreciate masterfully Craig accomplished that feat.

I especially enjoyed the allegorical nature of Masterless. I believe the producer, Craig Shimohara, mentioned there will be a series of short films exploring the allegories of the feature film in more detail. I greatly look forward to that!

I would encourage you to see the movie on the big screen if possible. If not, check out the Blu-Ray/DVD release on 2/2/2016!
