Extremely Good, 3 July 2011

Yang (Dong-gun), a Ninja Warrior, fails to complete his last mission and is on the run from his tribe, who are out to kill him. He hides in a run-down town in the Old West inhabited by circus people.

Cowboys and Ninjas: it just doesn't get any better than this. But, the real winners in here are the cinematography, photography, music, and exceptional sword and knife choreography. The acting and dialogue are also very good. And, humor comes in from time to time.

There are elements of the Good, Bad and the Ugly, Hit-man, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, and perhaps Kill Bill as well. What's not to like?

Yes, there is a lot of gore and you will see heads and limbs lopped off, and blood squirting everywhere. But, here is what I saw. Sheer poetry in motion at times. And, remember: it's only a movie.

I am sure we will see more of Jang Dong-gun as he truly exemplifies the true warrior ideal. The chemistry between him and Kate Bosworth was pretty good too.

Violence: Yes. Sex: No. Nudity: No. Gore: Yes. Language: Some soft stuff, not much either.
