    I really enjoyed this movie, beginning to end, much more than I thought.
  • Timeless Tale

    By Aqua62
    One of those rare martial arts movies that exceeds the martial arts. Yes the sword play is excellent. But when it is done in service of a great story, that’s a tale worth seeing.
  • Love It

    Cannot say enough good stuff about this one. Worth a purchase.
  • Outstanding.

    I’m 20 minutes from the ending and there are no dull moments. Go ahead and hit rent or even buy it. It’s that good.
  • Amazing

    OUTSTANDING! Every element of this movie is well harmonized. The cast, the scenes, the writing, the music. The entertainment is what I refer to as, “ just easy.” Nicely done.. with my compliments and appreciation.
  • Excellent review

    By Menumberone
    People who can’t read subtitles should go back to school. Dubbing is the worst thing to happen in film. And non English speaking countries make excellent tv and movies. Seriously, if you can’t hang with subtitles then stick with cartoons.
  • Very Good!

    Great plot, great acting, and great action. Another great movie coming out of Korea.
  • Better than expected

    I went on a limb...if you don’t mind subtitles, the action and story line is good.
