War of the Arrows

When a friend claimed the movie was the highest rated on Netflix, it seemed like a no brainer to watch it in spite of dark forebodings in my mind. Set in Korea at the onset of the second Manchu invasion, the film centers around a brother - sister pair. The brother is a master archer and when the Manchurian army kidnaps his sister on her wedding day, he sets off in pursuit taking them off one at a time. There is not much else to say about the film which has high production quality but it does not help overcome the poor story line and screenplay of the film. The moral is to never trust Netflix rating and recommendations of a certain friend.

Rating: *
