Picture:Scope;2.35:1,sharp,detailed.Only minor flaws visible,not often.Excellent Cinematography can now be seen,complete.Some of the darkest scenes appear with a slight haze.4/5. Sound:Crisp,clear,the drawing of each sword,running through water,and each jump and flying action are crystal clear.some slight background noise can be heard for a very short time approxiamately 12 minuets into the film,it lasts for about 20 seconds.I did not hear any other faults.The English Subtitles are not at all accurate;some sentences are not complete,some words are missing a letter,and some explanations seem incomplete. This did not distract me at all,but was a little irritating at times.4/5. The Film:Some excellent sword-fighting,less Kung-Fu.Characters can fly almost at will,move lightning fast,and somtimes turn invisible!The story is an entertaining one,but has it's slow points,made a little frustrating by those subtitles!You cannot root for either of the two main Characters,as each is equal in that;they both have supreme determination to represent China or Japan,in honour,dignity,e.t.c,and especially,by the sword! The final battle scene is made the more memorable by the outstanding Cinematography.4/5.
