Audience Reviews for Yamakasi - Les samouraïs des temps modernes

A convoluted version of Robin Hood. Instead of forest men in tights prancing around it's acrobatic men in tights prancing around. Ok for one viewing. I'm done.

Great idea for a movie. For the talent of the cast there needed to be much more action and less time spent on storyline. Dubbing in english would be a plus too.

It's like the plot of some silly 80's family flick about breakdancers gathering money to save some orphanage. But here, is parkour instead of breakdancing, which is certainly a lot much cooler, but damn, is it that hard to write a barely functional and interesting story? Way to go Besson.
