The Flying Swords of Dragon Gate Reviews
While the attractive performers and the action set pieces, including fights inside a sand tornado and around a spider's web of razor wire, are enough to carry you through the film, "Flying Swords" is a bit of a letdown ...
The 3D is terrific in Flying Swords of Dragon Gate, but helmer Tsui Hark's costume actioner -- the first Chinese-lingo movie shown in the stereoscopic Imax format -- is let down by two-dimensional characters.
Despite the movie's excessive length and incomprehensible plot, Tsui is still one of the world's absolute best at action and fight sequences; they move fast, but they're dazzlingly fluid and smooth.
For followers of wuxia films, the epic Flying Swords of Dragon Gate is a godsend...But the convoluted storyline...blunts the appeal for anyone who's not a fan.
