    The film is as beautiful as it is unpredictable.

    Throwdown milks its emotion from a soap-opera score and the appealingly decadent performances of Mr. Koo and Ms. Ying.
  3. The comedy is somewhat doused by posture and repetition, and the characters' whimsical behavior is endearing and irritating in turn. Which still makes it the absolute best neo-samurai judo farce in town.

    A disjointed story of self-discovery, courage and redemption somewhat incongruously billed as a salute to Akira Kurosawa.
