Summary: A great, bloody flick!
Set in the 18th Century, this bloody saga tells the tale of a simple man turned into a ruthless killer extraordinaire after his love has been taken from him.Let's face it, who really cares that the driving force behind the bloodshed is his long lost love, we watch it because of the bloodshed and carnage that ensues during the film.Graphically violent, blood sprays regularly and constantly.Excellent fight sequences and great direction keep things moving smartly along.The acting is above par as well.One of the best films I've seen this week (and believe me, I watch pretty damn many in a week).Fans of Lone Wolf series will enjoy this excellent action film.
