What are people saying?

  • Sunrise's rating of the film Duel at the Supreme Gate

    Despite reliance upon camera tricks to excite swordplay, Yuen's strong direction balances effective melodrama of Sirkian proportions with the mastering of Wuxia genre codes for an incredible narrative! Though Yuk Bin is rendered blind, a result of vengeance against her enemy-clan father, her focused listening becomes a trait of true justice: intentions clarify fate over clan affiliations, weapon ability or heritage.
