Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale Reviews
On reading about the historical facts of the events, I came across an equally shocking incident which really should have been the actual conclusion for the movie.
Part I is slightly better, whilst part II pales actually.
Overall is still overlong & exhausting however.

Warriors of the rainbow is a good action film and it's visuals are good for a Taiwanese film. The story is not so bad, so are the battle sequences scattered all over the film. The story is not that detailed even after having a detailed 2 and a half hours running time. The film doesn't drag and the important thing is that it shows good and bad on both sides. There are scenes in the blood sacrifice where the Seediq Bale kill the families including the children of the Japanese soldiers and the Japanese in the end leave the families of the warriors alive. The film's locations are impressive and it's a good watch.
