Critic Reviews for The Guillotines
The lack of rip-roaring martial arts or even a half-decent storyline will leave genre aficionados feeling short-changed.
The plot is of little importance - the spectacular action and gorgeous landscapes and costumes are what matter.
The blades fly as do the heads, but the movie remains disappointingly aground.
The Guillotines expends most of its energy in its first 30 minutes, leaving the audience with roughly 90 minutes of soapy Qing Dynasty fan fiction.
A historical action epic set during the Qing dynasty that amounts to a bait-and-switch for wuxia fans stoked for steel-meets-flesh mayhem.
