    A Tsui Hark (Once Upon a Time in China) masterpiece, Seven Swords, is a dense, dense film that rewards multiple viewings, in part because it was more than 4 hours long before being cut down to its 2h30 length (the Asian cut). Having to edit it down so much makes some bits harder to follow, but I think it mostly benefits. It takes on an elliptical bent that's a lot more interesting than a more chronological telling might have been. Action scenes by my favorite action direction, Lau Kar-Leung, and villains that steal every scene they are in. I'm happy there's talk of a sequel (I even heard one actor say FIVE sequels) because it ends with lots of room for it. This is/could be China's Lord of the Rings (I was often reminded of The Two Towers, in fact). 7 years 6 months ago
