The Press Reviews

  • The plot's light and dark elements... start clashing halfway through this overlong feature and never resolve. Full Review

  • Though a bit longer than necessary, the movie tells an engaging, enjoyable story, peppered with impressive dance numbers. Full Review

  • By the end, fancifully snappy dance numbers vie with grisly bullet ballet for top setpiece honors: Kang stages both with aplomb, leaving audiences caught between crying and cheering. Full Review
