historical fiction/action set in 7th century China. I'm a fan of the Judge Dee mystery books, this adaptation is on the same scale as Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings. The cinematography is amazing, an extremely epic experience.
I watched it in 720p. I strongly recommend renting it/buying it/or piratebaying it (depending on moral choices/legal influences) I had a great time watching it.
Just saw Prometheus earlier. Been waiting to see this one forever and Ridley Scott delivered in my opinion. Very solid "prequel" and a decent bit of character development with recurring themes from the Alien movies. Solid 8/10 in my opinion.
i watched Child of Men on netflix last night. (it had julianne moore and peter o'tool so i'm thinking hey this might be ok
even Ebert gave it a glowing review.)
yeah it was an ok movie, but had a lot of loose threads. also, the acting was mediocre. my 'attraction' actors had very small parts and they were the only well acted ones.
ah well. i'll give it a 7.
