Movie Reviews

Good Mainland pic

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This film was made by several people envolved
with Jet Li's Shaolin Temple trilogy and it
will be fairly easy to pick out some faces (sorry,
don't have the names at my fingertips).
The story is about a swordsman who's village is
caught between warring feudal lords (I believe there
are three groups, all plotting to wipe each other
out). Our swordsman is more or less non-partisan until
his wife and daughter are killed. Ironically,
all the warlords want him to join their forces onaccount of his indredible skills, but are willing to
resort to any means if he won't join them.
The tone od the story is somewhat downbeat, and there
are no surprises in terms of plot, but the action is
pletiful and we see some great drunken sword!
World Video's version of this is widescreen (1.8.5)
and offers english dub or cantonese (but no subs!!!!!).
This movie was filmed with a pretty serious budget and we
can tell on account of the large armies and elaborate
costums. The print is sharp and well preserved.
Worth checking out!"
