One of Jet Li´s weaker performances (I guess someone will wrong me on this one??) for a while. The movie is grand and almost Epic and in the beginning I thought this would be a really good movie. Again I am surprised by the Asian unfamiliar way of telling a story.
And so it works well for a long time, but the problem is that halfway in the movie, it gets stuck and we just keep having the same over and over again (This is a problem that is returning in many movies – stagnation) and so it turns into a bore and I hardly convinced myself to see the rest, just to be disappointed.
Maybe I had to high expectations? I am not sure.
