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. This is what happens when there are barely any people of colour on the production team or the writing team.
