In my opinion, this is a movie about what a desperate brother with great abilities with the bow and arrow will do to save his little sister. This is not about loyalties to your country, or the greater good. This is about a last promise made to a father and the blind need to protect the sister you raised as your daughter.

I liked and enjoyed this movie. I like well made read more action movies and this one did a wonderful job with their action scenes. The scenery was incredible and the story was interesting enough. The characters and depth of the story I felt was lacking a bit of weight, but overall I felt it was all well acted and made.

The movie is 2 hrs+, but I did not feel it. That time is mostly made up with the action. I had honestly never watched a movie in which arrows were central to the story. This movie did an amazing job with it.

I recommend it if you like fast paced action movies, have a couple of hours to spared.

Make a Recommendation Recommendations

Both are about a man using his smarts and shooting skills (bow & arrow in one and gun and martial arts in the other) to rescue a girl.

Both men are also seeking redemption in some way which makes the quest and need to rescue the girl a quest to preserve what little faith/hope in the world they cling to.

    Must watch! Excellent story and great acting. "Edge of your seat" action! My second time after a couple of years. You won't regret it. I rated this movie 9.5 out of 10. I am quite surprised that there aren't more reviews and comments.

    Probably one of the best action scenes and cinematography. I watched with 480p quality but it felt 1080p. Good scenery through out and an okay plot but that didnt stop it from being really good. Movie is mainly about loyalty and family. I really enjoyed it

      One of the best action/meaningful movies I have ever seen (in any language) is "Red Cliff" Part I and Part II. Not sure if there are other sites showing it, but I saw it on Kissasian.com, although I hate all their offensive and many ads.

    "Fear, you simply face it straight on"

    This one is mainly action, and oh boy was the action great. It kept me on the edge of my seat. All main characters surprised me how much they kicked ass. The last 15 minutes was so intense though. If anything wasn't too great, it'd be the effect used on a certain animal :P

    Other than great action, the movie did have something deeper that made you invested in the main character and absorbed to the screen the whole time. The is the bonding of brother and sister, of loyalty, of moving on and changing life, but mainly of FACING OUR FEARS. I guess what made the action so intense is the presence of fear. Thanks to the acting, every hit they get, or missed but a close call, you see through the eyes of the characters the shock, and having to overcome it in a matter of seconds. Anyways had a great time watching it ;)

    This is hard to explain. I liked this story, actors, and the way it was filmed.. so basically the movie.. but I thought something was missing. I didn't feel with them, I wasn't 'in the movie'.. That's what it was missing!
