  • One ticket buys you cowboys, samurais, gangsters, ninjas, spaghetti Westerns, Hong Kong martial artists, knife throwers and even Fellini-esque circus performers. But like kimchi pasta, some things aren't meant to mix. show more

  • The result is way out there - so far that you won't quite recognize the terrain, and still feel strangely at home. The look has the impossible feel of a CGI soundstage: Not cheap, not even necessarily fake, just… weird. show more

  • While the movie seems designed to be a breakout for Jang, it's Lee whose work actually makes an impression. show more

    Critics were way too harsh. This is a fun movie,visually exciting with a wiggy story. Clearly out of the ordinary in many ways. This movie clearly deserves better. Creative and fun!!

    This movie was excellant in showing the balance of ying and yang. There is the strength of the warrior and there is the calm side. iN MARTIAL ARTS NOT EVENTHING IS HARD! The laudry business was to serve, the baby was to care and protect, the garden scene was what he could take from the earth and make life ******************* the enitre life syle of a person who is in the martial arts . It is the same way now for the \"weekend martial artist\&************ all about balance in your life..
