Seven Swords the new Tsui Hark film

The new Tsui Hark wuxia epic Seven Swords is released here in the UK on 24th February. Definitely one to watch at the cinema with sweeping visual style and plenty of gruesome beheadings! Highlights for me were Lau Kar Leung's performance and someone getting pounded to death by a lute. The story is a little disjointed at times as it buckles under the weight of the seven main characters but stick with at as it really picks up in the second half. The seeds for the sequel are planted in this movie, perhaps this will not run as long as the Once Upon a Time in China series but it will run. . .
