The Lost Bladesman (Guan yun chang) Reviews

May 5, 2011
An epic historical martial arts film with thin characters, a tepid love story and some excellent fight sequences with the long-handled crescent-moon blade.

There's something really robust about actually seeing a fight rather than the cutaways and the illusion of a fight rather than a real fight.

The Lost Bladesman starts off big and rather cool and ends up an intimate epic hot and heavy with spent passions and an aura of sadness that's unexpectedly moving.

I found the storytelling a little confusing, mostly due to the plethora of characters who are mentioned in the context of the wars that are taking place or about to. But aside from that, the film works as a well made genre piece
