Excellent Jet Li movie with it's mix of comedy and martial arts. The sequel is also well worth watching.
Stephen Chow can do no wrong in my eyes and this is another funny movie he made.
The first in the Samurai Trilogy is a brilliant tale of a wild peasant orphan who after some trials and tribulations gets to become a samurai. A great storyline and beautiful cinematography add up to make a fantastic movie. Roll on Part 2!
I have to say that this movie engaged me completely. I could feel deeply for all the characters. Of course if you want a plot, action and a resolution you won't find it here. But there is room for many different kinds of movies for different tastes. It was not so much a story as a picture of a family having to cope with the aftermath of the tragic death of their wife/mother. Any neat resolution would have been unrealistic. The fact that it showed domestic scenes was the whole point really. Everyday life has to go on, despite the pain of loss. The city of Genoa, with its maze of alleys and slightly threatening feel, as well as its beauty, was a perfect backdrop, to a family emotionally adrift and lost, trying to find a way through their loss to some kind of normal life.I thought all the actors did a marvellous job, and were totally convincing in the way they related to each other and reacted to their situation. This was a perfect role for Colin Firth. He is able to convey so much emotionally, with great restraint and delicacy of touch. I can see why people might find thismovie boring but for me this was not the case. If you are interested in human relations, particularly family relations and grief, this is well worth seeing.
One of Sammo's best film. Expect the usual from one of HK's Young Dragons - comedy, action and fantastic martial arts scenes.
