Ripley's movie review

Visually stunning with terrific use of colour. The fight scenes were good and I particularly liked every scene that involved multiple arrows. The movie was a bit slow at the beginning but got much better as it went on. Worth watching.

Newt's movie review

The fight scenes were stunning and spectacular, it was visually impressive and very artistic, and almost like ballet. I liked that each person's story was told in its own colour, and that the story on the whole wasn't linear. Unfortunately, at only ninety minutes it felt very long. It's pretty, and the story is good, but it isn't enough.
