A bit boring?
7 November 2018 | by finesherrySee all my reviews

I normally like these sort of films, Asian fantasy-esque fims. But from the get go, it did not hold my interest. Yes the special effects were ok, but could not really make head nor tails of what was going on. That may be in part to the English subtitles, they were very small and and very fast subtitles, so while straining to try to read them, by the time you had started reading them, they went that fast, that you never got all of the subtitles. If it were dubbed into English, Imay give it another go. But overall, it did not impress me, sorry.
