Critic Reviews

  1. A not particularly satisfying ending that involves silly CG effects. On the other hand, the acting is uniformly compelling, the fight sequences are energetic, and, as character drama, the material is especially enthralling.
  2. May be a period piece but there's nothing antiquated about it except an overly populated, initially hard-to-follow plot.
  3. The film plays like a Hollywood-influenced Japanese samurai movie, though nothing as subtle as Kurosawa's best, and with white subtitles that often are hard to read against the white of the Gobi.
  4. 63
    Falters when it gets involved with supernatural gobbledygook.
  5. A magnificent looking and occasionally very silly Chinese Western.
  6. 63
    More of a sand-and-noodles western set in the Far East.
  7. The spaghetti western may be dead, but the noodle eastern looks to be alive and well.
