This isn"t really a wuxia movie or action movie. Though the action is done great, this movie is mostly a tragedy-revenge-romance that fits well with the setting chosen khổng lồ portray the story. As someone who despise sappy romance drama, this one just hit the right notes.I won"t talk about the action and cinematography much, just say it was stunning. If Trung Quốc is best at portraying colours in their wuxia, S. Korea is great at using different seasons lớn depict it. This type of experience is what differentiate watching movies from watching dramas.Acting: great on all fronts. I was initially no big fan of Lee Byung Hun but he really commands the scenes he"s in, from the first time we meet hlặng. First time seeing Jeon Do Yeon và she was great. Seeing Kyên ổn Go Eun again is a treat and she never disappoints. You don"t feel that she"s acting with other big stars she"s just immersed inlớn the role. The rest of the cast fit their roles as well.The story itself is nothing new, starting with betrayal the revenge that follows. The extover to which the character was willing khổng lồ go for revenge it insane. It"s really hard khổng lồ judge it. What attracted me most and kept my attention is the complicated characters và the disturbing love story. Deok Ki is corrupted and disgusting in every way, yet his love is so real & pure. As illogical it is, I just totally bought it. Same goes for Sul Rang, that carried true hatred towards him, leading lớn an insane revenge plan, yet wishing she could forgive sầu hyên. This is the type of intense crazy romance I totally enjoy watching. There"s something so raw and desperate about it. Hong Yi went through many phases in the movie, but I just love sầu her in the last fighting scene, cold yet emotionally intense! Her side love sầu story however was a bore, with typical kdrama cliché that I totally could"ve done without. Still it didn"t remove anything from my enjoyment, it just wasn"t too logical. However I find the main leads" love sầu story also illogical but I totally buy it and believe it.After finishing the movie I read many comments complaining about the movie calling it a Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon copy. While I agree it alludes lớn it, the movie stands on its own telling its own story. Definitely worth a try.
