Expected more but too lengthy and too slow burning
I expected a lot from this movie. but i was disappointed with so many aspects. you have to really pay close attention to the narrative because there were so many characters crammed in that i found it difficult to keep track of who was who.
the build-up to the climax was very slow and you would need a lot of patience for a movie which is 2 hrs 30 mins. when it came, the climax was anti-climactic as far as i am concerned.
the best thing about the movie is the cinematography. lush green bamboo forests, the scenery are visual delights and deserve extra stars.
