Warriors of Heaven and Earth (Tian di ying xiong) Reviews
This movie is the story of an Imperial Agent sent to bring to justice a murderer, his final mission before he is allowed to go home to his family in Japan. The murderer, a former army officer accused of mutiny when he refused to kill a group of women and children. The movie is the tale of their trek across the desert fighting against each other and with each other. The dialog was great, short and delivered impeccably by an incredible cast of characters. It has been a long while since I have seen such thoughtful, dramatic acting. The movie is shot mostly in the desert but it is all done beautifully and with exactly the right tone and feel. I enjoyed the period costumes and the fight scenes were extremely well choreographed.
I like it.
The acting was great and local and cinematography were amazing, but the fighting actually sucked. for everything good this movie has, there is something bad, and what a let down that was. i like the story, but something about this director really didn't compute with me.
