Interesting mix of opera, Italian westerns, the circus and ninja assasins. The movie is beautifully done. The visuals, the costumes, the backgrounds are fantastic. The fight scenes short and sweet and creatively done. I liked one set as if the viewer were inside a tent and all you see are the shadows of the bad guys and our hero and you hear the sounds of fighting and see the shadows fall down and you wonder what happened then big sweeps of blood appear on the dirty white canvas walls of the tent.
There are two story arcs, Yang the assasin who couldn't kill the last remaining enemy of his clan, a baby girl, who is running away from his vengeful clan and Lynn a young girl raised by the circus who wants revenge against the leader of the bandits who murdered her father, mother and baby brother in front of her eyes after she was shot and left for dead by the gang leader. Yang and baby April arrive in a deserted mining town whose remaining residents are a broken down traveling circus that have no where to go. Yang stays and reopens the laundry and learns what it is to have friends and family until the day the cowboy gang arrives back in town and following closely behind the clan of ninja assasins.
The film was truly an international effort with work done in Korea, Japan, the United States, New Zealand, India, Australia and the United Kingdom.
