Swordsmen aka Wu xia (2011) - Action | Drama

Swordsmen aka Wu xia (2011) - GOOD MOVIE

  This is a very interesting and different martial arts movie. Not revolutionary, per se, but it's innovative, exciting, and an original. The first half of the movie is basically CSI, China, Ching Dynasty. I thought it's pretty funny, but it lacks a certain epic and mystical quality that good martial arts movies have. Then the second half of the movie complements the first half beautifully; it becomes more like a traditional martial arts movie. The movie is beautifully filmed, with unusual composition and gorgeous color.
   Overall, a perfect detective film. Not recommended for those under 14. Highly recommended to those who like this genre. Fantastic movie.
