    Honestly it was pretty decent. Although the film should have been in Chinese with subtitles, and they shouldn't of cast Nicholas Cage in it, period. 7 years 5 months ago

    I actually thought this was pretty decent. There's a lot to like here, including a strong lead performance from Christensen, Nic Cage chewing the scenery like his life depends on it (complete with glorious, Con Air-esque flowing locks), frequent and well-directed fight scenes, beautiful scenery, and some really cool camera techniques. I certainly wouldn't call it 'good' in any traditional sense, but for those who enjoy medieval b-movie romps in the vein of Ironclad, Season Of The Witch, and Outlander, this may well be worth the hour and a half. 9 years 7 months ago

    quote:
    A lot of actors these days want to ground their performances within their own formative experiences, but good acting takes more than that. Some historical and cultural perspective, for example. Does that mean I spent four days in a Yunnan opium den with Hayden? Of course not. I was too busy hanging out with Timothy Spall at his ice cream parlor in the Dordogne. I was copying his accent, which is exactly how I think a Crusader in the 13th century would talk, but with a little Armenian patois mixed in. I wanted to sound like Tom Hardy after some poorly considered Bolivian oral surgery. He doesn't own bad accents, you know. You leave a Nic Cage movie aroused or confused. That's not my mantra. It's Laurence Olivier's. If I need to talk in a way that no one understands, then so be it. Everything is just part of the shamanic convergence.
