    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Man, this was fucking terrible. I wasn't expecting a quasi- Zhang Yimou wuxia movie -- it had all the fucking ingredients to make it so though -- but at least somewhat like it, and it did not happen. I tried to like this because I'm Chinese and I was rooting for it, but this was so disappointing.

    You know those tiny seconds between the time when the final frames of a movie fade to black and the time when the movie credits first appear on-screen? Yeah. For this movie, those seconds were the longest seconds in my entire month.

    Holy fucking shit, this movie was awful. I don't see how it's award-winning at all. Casey Affleck essentially plays a wooden board the entire damn movie. A wooden board to match the wooden house the movie is set…
