60The most interesting threads aren't political but personal, with a melodramatic romance providing some well-earned tears. Your final thoughts, however, are likely to concern Jennifer Tilly, who's so bizarrely miscast as a severe missionary that her presence becomes its own distraction.
38From overwrought flashbacks of Third Master and Madame Kang's initial meetings (and sexual encounter), to the present-day arguments and maneuverings of Lord Kang, Empire of Silver is so determined to stage its material with reverence that it embalms any flickers of passion or tension.

10Empire of Silver is one of the best films I've ever seen. The gigantic scene of places, houses, and antique
ancient world of China just 100 plus years ago moved me to tears.
The promotion of two word adage in business from the movie is "kind and righteous" which should be
displayed in the USA in a prominent place on all Websites. This is a great movie. It is a 10.
I would urge every one of you to watch this movie asap. It is showing in the USA cities.
Hurry! Go figure! Go Watch!… Expand
