Hidden gem,
16 November 2020 | by shide_85See all my reviews

Complicated intrigues (not pointed out clearly but made clear by parts of the dialogue without being explained in details or taking away), well over anticipated swordplay, good martial arts, good effects and some emotional parts lying right under the plot and dialogue if you can spot them. The only real drawback is that it takes it one step to far at atleast 1 point possibly 2. Not as much as to derail all sentiment, but enough to be disturbing for those enthralled up til that point. The reading of angles also shows how masters of martial arts (try) work to survive attacks by several oponents. A nice tough is the villain balancing on the borderline to evil rather than being pure evil all the time.
