A good big battle epic film with some good fight scenes with a Western style feel to it.
This is a film you have to give about 15-20 minutes to before you give up on it. If you're willing to invest the time, there is an incredibly rich story waiting for you, replete with honor, duty, respect and love. Wonderful movie, but just give it a minute to grow on you. Well done film.
Great extraordinary Chinese tale of battle, comradeship and honour. The excitement scenes between a Japanese emissary and renegade solider-turned-mercenary who team up to protect a sacred caravan travelling across the desert.
An imperial emissary on a mission to bring a fugitive soldier to justice instead joins forces with him to defend a buddhist monk and his caravan. The usual mix of honourable men, swordplay and a beautiful princess is on offer, but during the first half of the film, swap the caravan for a wagon train and the swords for sixguns and what you have is an old fashioned western. Half way through though, things take an unexpectedly supernatural turn as we find out what it is they are protecting.The cinematography, locations and costumes are as attractive as we've come to expect in these post Crouching Tiger times, but the narrative leaves more than a little to be desired; characterisation is minimal, so it is very difficult to care when one of the characters is killed off, and the plot consists of little more than an episodic series of strangely sterile and bloodless battle sequences. It is very attractive to look at though, and certainly does not bore; the siege sequence is particularly impressive and reminded me of Kingdom Of Heaven on a budget. On the whole it's reasonably entertaining but the weaknesses in the script mean it's not in the same league as the extremely similar The Musa.
