"Blades Of Blood"... more than a good movie!
7 May 2017 | by Heav_y_FunSee all my reviews

I regularly watch Asian movies. Chinese, Japanese, Korean and so on. From dramas to Martial Arts movies. For years of experience in such movies, I noticed that the Koreans certainly do not bother with Chinese and Japanese films. On the contrary! They surpass their rivals in certain movies!

One of those movies is undoubtedly "Blades Of Blood"! How can you give such a movie a 6.0 ?!

And I certainly do not understand the negative comments on this excellent movie. Especially the acting performance of Hwang Jung-min in this action drama is unmatched!

Everyone who loves Asian movies, with historical facts, drama, comedy and adventure MUST watch this movie!

Blades of Blood contains everything; Comedy, action, humor, adventure and much more!

I recommend this movie to anyone who is not afraid to see Asian movies. This movie is worth your money and time!

Anyone who finds this movie bad is just a holly / Bollywood freak or does not have any sense of movies!

It's as easy as that.

I personally prefer Korean movies and series over the rest.

The performances of the Koreans regularly exceed their other Asian rivals.

Give a chance to Korean movies, and do not underestimate them.

Blades Of Blood is a great movie to start with.
