Summary: Bottle not battle

The VCD cover calls this film "Snuff Battle".

The only battle was staying awake.

Beware anyone expecting a martial arts movie. This film begins in Paris, where the two scriptwriters wander around lookng for an ancient piece of pottery, which goes on for ages.

The story them shifts to historical times, but continues to proceed at a gentle pace. After 20 minutes of nothing happening, I gave up.

If anyone else has seen the whole movie, please let us know if there's any good stuff later on. The film has been screened on Australia's SBS-TV.
