The Three Swordsmen (1994)
Reviewed by: STSH on 2001-07-23
Summary: Mixed bag
I agree with most of the criticisms which the other reviewers mentioned. However, this film does have a few things going for it.

Groovy music, for instance. This is YET ANOTHER film for which there seems to be no soundtrack released. SHAME !

And, as movies are a largely visual experience, the photography is simply gorgeous. Colourful, fast moving, pacy. A treat for the eye.

But this doesn't add up to a great movie. I watched this one back to back with HANDSOME SIBLINGS. There are quite some parallels. Same lead actors and quite a few of the same plot points, for instance. But HS is much much better.

If you, like me, absolutely adore wu'xia (flying people) films which are terrific eye candy, then you shouldn't miss this film. But that still don't make it one of the greats.
