14 Blades
(overall rating: 2.9 out of 5 based on 3 reviews)
LoveHKfilm, by Kozo source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/reviews_2/14_blades.html
«14 Blades follows suit, providing stylish action and amped-up art direction but not the emotions or characters that it should. ... 14 Blades has its positives, and can kill time for anyone who's in it only for the action or Donnie Yen. But is it a good movie? No, not really, and ultimately proves as memorable as the mildly entertaining Empress and the Warriors.»
Twitch, by Stefan source: http://twitchfilm.net/reviews/2010/01/review-of-14-blades.php
«It's far from being the perfect film, especially with unbelievably incoherent flashbacks and the going overboard with explosions (of the RPG type), but Donnie Yen once again shows that when it comes to the fisticuffs, he still has a lot to offer, despite the story's potential that had it go off the blocks strongly, only to fizzle out before the end in a case of severe narrative burn-out.»
movieXclusive.com, by Richard Lim Jr - 2,5/5 source: http://www.moviexclusive.com/review/14blades/14blades.html
«Attractive, exotic and fancy Blade but when it comes to story and character buildup, it was a pretty blunt Blade»
beyondhollywood.com, by Nix source: http://www.beyondhollywood.com/14-blades-2010-movie-review/
«If you thought “14 Blades” was just another excuse to watch Donnie Yen whup some ass in period setting and fall deeply into Vicki Zhao’s expressive eyes, then you’re not too far off. The film is working from a very weak script, and a lot of the movie’s narrative plotting doesn’t really make a whole lot of sense. »
The Hollywood Reporter, by Maggie Lee source: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/film-reviews/14-blades-film-review~~~9.story
«It would have ended a mediocre film if not for the inventively designed and utilized weaponry (especially the titular 14 blades with different functions) -- a cool homage to action master Chang Cheh's Freundian, fetishistic use of weapons.»
