Before China was unified, seven states were warring. One of the state’s king wanted to become the first Emporer of China but there are assassins from the other states set out to stop that.
I really liked this movie. It told the same general story over and over again, but in different ways. The hero tells how he killed some assassins to save the state’s king. Then there’s another version of how the story might have gone. And then there are a couple more versions. I think the last one was the correct one, but it didn’t really matter. It was cool to see each different version that ended up with the same basic result.
There were a lot of bright colors in this movie like there were in House of Flying Daggers. When one person wore bright red, so did everyone else. Then in the next story it was light blue. Next it was green and then white. I liked the colors in the different story. It made all the fighting very pretty.
The girl from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and House of Flying Daggers was in this movie too. It must be a requirement that she is in all movies of this fashion. She’s a bit of a loon in the movie, but I thought she provided good comic relief, even if that wasn’t her intention.
