“..there's no way to overstate the gorgeous look of this film, but the mannered dialogue and deliberateness of pace becomes less of an homage to Asian revenge films than a parody..”

“..the movie is so devoid of emotion that its ritualized gore acts as a narcotic. Filmed in shades of red, with a minimal screenplay..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
“..part schlockfest, part campy fairy tale, this is a movie that begs you to bring your own barf bag..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
Review rate : C-
