Oriental fantasy is my kinda movie genre. The characters in this one are as colorful as a peace-loving man effortlessly killing over a dozen ninjas, or a super-sweet doll who happens to be among the top warriors in the village. The story is rather silly, where self-sacrifice is the order of the day. It's edgy at the same time, but is too poetic for my liking (think Hero or Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and there's isn't enough of great martial arts choreography.
