Alright, I guess it wasn't that bad. It was obvious that the blond guy and his posy were working for the chinaman for some batshit insane reason, and one of them had major homo lust for the blond one, but that's about it. The other group of people that attacked the blonds group was completely pointless. All of a sudden he was betraying someone. Was it supposed to be some sort of twist? Who the hell was he and why does it even matter that he was betraying someone. He had like three minutes of prior screen time. Also, what the hell was that talk about the vice commander marrying some princess locked in a tower? What the fuck was the point of those guys. What was with the monk who locked the kid in the tower?
Too many characters that had like three or less minutes of screen time were tried to be converted into something bigger, when in fact nobody cared about them at all and the movie would have been just as good without them.
Also, it was hilarious how they had to kill people with them taking opium.
