This movie is way better than a movie where Johnny Depp plays a chameleon gunslinger deserves to be. But with Gore Verbinski, Hans Zimmer, and Roger Deakins behind the scenes it all comes together in a great homage to the western genre.
Such beautiful composition and choreography. Feels like it would be at home in the western genre, with stunning fantasy thrown in the mix. A natural stepping stone to Hu’s epic A Touch of Zen. King Hu really is the king.
