This movie was outstanding and I truly hope they have given it the best and highest recognition that a production like this deserves. First the all cast actors/actress could tell anyone from the start that its a superb movie! not to mention the award winning production crew, I praise you all!
Now on to the story. the story line was pretty straight forward and simple with the historical battles that not only take place in the dynasty era of China but the fight for power among the ruling family. Note: if you like martial arts and old era movie this is it for you! If not then you can still enjoy the remarkable acting and great music, that makes us all wish we could time travel even if it as for a day. The graphics, costumes, artwork, martial arts movement, dance, everything was breath taking! So stop wasting time reading my review and go enjoy and fall in love with the movie like I did! Thank you!
