Ashes of Time: Redux- August 17th

Ashes of Time: Redux (2008)
Cantonese- Action/Adventure
Rated “R”
Runtime- 94 min.
dir. Kar Wai Wong

Story/Writing: 1/2

I fell asleep twice while trying to watch this. I understand that minimalist storytelling and framing can really pay off if done right, but this wasn’t right. Nothing is intriguing enough for me to care, and I found myself dozing because of it.


Acting: 1/2


Photography/Set: 1/2

Desert after uninteresting desert.

Sound/FX: 1.5/2

Pretty good sword fights, but there are a lot of other choices out there, most of which are a part of better movies.

Misc: 1/2

VERDICT: 5.5/10

Just make sure you have some caffeine on hand for a viewing.
