It’s a nice change to see a film that can be shamelessly sentimental about friendship, family, political idealism – anything except sex.
A good, old-fashioned heroic tale, with brave warriors, noble princesses, and honourable commanders.
A timely and relevant film that unfortunately fails to live up to its potential.
The longest and best part of this movie is the training sequence, in which the hero learns by gradual stages the skills needed to be a kung fu master.
I like this movie, with its moments of sweetness, whimsy, and humour, but there’s a cold nugget of cynicism at its heart that keeps me from loving it.
Ever think of a piggy-back as one person rubbing their genitals against another person’s spine? Neither had I.
