    April 15, 2008 Ambient masterpiece Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
    Sagisu Shiro has really done some fantastic work on this soundtrack.

    2 discs which was the really right choice. First one is more or less a trip in the ambient land, everyoen that has seen the movie knows what Im talking about. Disc 2 has the harder songs which contains some eletric guitar among other things.

    It is of course a plus to have seen the film and just relive all the wonderful scenes during the listening time of this album, but if you are a fan of ambient music in general you should not hesitate to give this one a chance.

    the korean version is as far as I know identic with the japaneese version.

    April 15, 2008 Almost all the way Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
    I guess many fans of Jet Li was a bit afraid that he was going to go all bad on screen when he was ending wushu style onscreen. Well after seeing this movie we all know this is not the case.
    So instead of using wushu in the film what does he do? he kicks ass with weapons and regular kicks and fists of course!

    This movie feels abit like the answer to saving private ryan, band of brothers and simualr films, only that this is dealing with China and the wars between the provinces back in the days. Instead of massive shootings and bombings this movie has alot of swords, cannons and other stuff to make the battle fields turn red.

    All in all this movie is really good. Well scripted and well acted from all actors in the movie.
    The only thing that bothers me is that it drops in tempo in the middle of the film and becomes a bit dull and then goes up in tempo again.

    Anyhow if you are a fan of big battles with swords, kicks, fists and cannons and an angry jet li in general position look no further, this movie is for you.

    I shall also add that this movie is semi graphic and shows a few nasty things here and there, which to me is a good thing as Ive become very tired of Hollywoods "no blood, no swearing, no graphic violence" in films, show some realism or don't bother to show it at all.

    October 1, 2007 WoW!! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    This review is based upon the american release of this soundtrack I don't know why its called lovers in japan but this is the house of flying daggers soundtrack. It contains the same songs and plays just the same.

    for a soundtrack this is up there with the best movie soundtrack Ive heard.
    from fast paced drummings to slowpaced flutes and other instruments are used just beutifully throughout the entire album.

    the sound is top notch. its a wonderfully 3d soundfiled that is presented on this album more or less making your room disappear, it doesn't feel like you are listening to music it sound like you are experience it, if that makes any sense.

    this album has my biggest grattitude.

    October 1, 2007 really good Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
    Invisible Target was a really good action thriller.
    even though it might feel a bit slow paced at times it has a well written story, interesting characters and everybody in the film does their parts top notch.

    don't expect a bullet balle film as its not!
    but what you get is a thriller of high class and when its action it is action HK style!
    some awsome stunts are to be seen aswell..

    September 17, 2007 Work of Art Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
    Chrono Cross is maybe for most people the best RPG that has ever been made looking on every single system there is.
    So how does the soundtrack stand up to this amasing game? Well clearly is that even on this partiuclar level its maybe one of the best soundtracks ever created for an RPG.
    What made Chrono Cross so good back in teh days was that everything in the game was so stunnig.
    Graphics, character development, the story and of course the music.
    Yasunori Mitsuda has totally outdone himself on this soundtrack, and up to date I still think this is the best work he has created.
    From the smashing opening song to sad hymns.

    Despite the fact that this is a box of 3 cd's there are very very few songs that won't grab hold of you and give you certain emotions. sadness, joy, anger etc.
    From ctachy musci to more large scales orochstral music are found on this soundtrack.

    I rate it 9/10 because as I have mentioned in the other game soundtracks reviews. Buying japaneese doesn't give you any title in english, the booklet that follows can't be read either.
    Its sad that they don't try and bring out both japaneese and english translated booklets and song titles.
    Now I have to get the song titles of the net.

    still if you like RPG music in particular, you should give this one a try. Chances are that you might be a part of the growing group considering this the best RPG soundtrack of all time.

    September 15, 2007 Roller Coaster Ride Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
    From start to finnish, this album takes you on a roller coaster ride. From the most epic battle hymns, to more gentle ambient styles reminding me of the early days of Era.

    The sound is oustanding on this recording with clear voices and every instrument is easy to spot in the soundfield.

    If you like smashing cresendos and ambient type of classical scores all onto one cd, this album should give you satisfaction.
    Probably one of the better film soundtracks Ive heard over the years.

    August 7, 2007 wu jing lifts the show Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    This movie has either good reviews or bad reviews seemd to be no middle

    I had no expectations when I entered it in my DVD player but I was happy when it was over, happy in the way that this movie was very good.

    Some bluscreen effects are very very cheesy but the acting and action is really really good.
    and I must say that Wu Jing kind of steals the show everytime he goes on screen.
    This dude is amasing!
    It was fun to see Sammo Hung fight of some more but his role was kinda in the background and shold have been lifted up a tiny bit still he plays his role as Sammo usually plays, very good.

    This is a flick for everyone that really enjoyes over-the top HK action. It has tons of wire-fu but its just cool to see.

    Look thru some of the cheesy bluscreen effects and this film delivers great action.

    July 27, 2007 Wonderful Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
    I have earlier made a reviews of the unrated edition of this film so I copy and paste that one into here with some add-ons only.

    I'm so glad that after all these halfmade movies he's been given in Hollywood he finally gets a movie that he deserves.
    Fearless is a film where we get to see Jet's skills in acting AND Martial Arts!
    Wow, what a film this is!
    The scens are beautfiul made which makes me think of the older ones such as Once Upon A Time In China 1,2,3 and others he made before he landed in hollywood.

    The acting is on par with his performance in Danny The Dog (A movie I find very interesting and well played by Jet)

    Jet has said this will be his last film that he gonna make using of the martial arts style Wushu, I don't know about that, but if this really is his last film of that kind it was a very very good "this is for you my fans" film.

    Every move you have loved him for is here, evey "jet smile" is here it got it all!

    What differs the directors cut with the other releases is a few new scenes that just helps this movie to build tention.
    I wonder WHY movie companies shall butcher the directors visions of a film since most of the times those editions are the best ones.
    This oen is no exepction. It helps to get a better picture on the character jet plays and also with this directors cut we get a little info. regarding wushu as a martial arts style and what its meaning is.

    thx for all these yrs Jet Li! Good Luck with future film projects!

    April 16, 2007 OST made right Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    This is just a smashing piece of final fantasy songs that comes on 4 cd's!

    Every single song that is in the game can be found here and even a few that is not in the game.

    Personally I think this is one of the best final fantasy soundtracks to date.
    The sound is crystal clear and makes good use of your hi-fi equipment to let you inside this massive world they have created.

    I got the limited edition box of this collection so I frankly don't know how the regular edition will be but the downside on this one (as with all soundtracks comming out of Japan) is that as always there is no info. regarding titles in english only japaneese.
    the booklet that follows this box is also printed in japaneese so for us that don't understand this its kinda useless, but it comes with some very nice pohotographs to rest the eyes on.

    Over all this is surly a game soundtrack that should be owned and my bet is that even people that has not played this game themselves can still enjoy the songs on this. Everything from heavy battlehyms to more peacefull songs are collected here.

    Get the translated song titles of the net to solve the prolem with japaneese characters and your fine.

    thx square for making another stunning release.

    April 7, 2007 Great Movie Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    There are alot of God Of Gamblers movies out there..
    And this is the second installment in the God Of Gamblers era with Chow Yun Fat.

    This one is filled with comedy that hits good on every level.
    Also the action is very cool even though this is more of a comedy.
    This remastered release looks really good.. its fun to see how many of those old hong kong releases gets the treatment they deserve on DVD now.

    Its surly a must by if you are a fan of chow yun fat and a fan of oldschool hongkong flix in general.

    February 27, 2007 Martial Arts made Beautiful Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    Ever since I first saw Wu Jing in the awsome movie SPL I, among others, wished to see him in a bigger role than the support character he played in SPL!
    Finally the wait is over.
    Wu Jing plays this fighter who is drawn inside a world of illegal street fighting, and oh my does he hit the spot! This movies is really filled with some stunning acrobatics and cool made fights!

    Despite a rather cheesy story, that still provides a cool twist plots here and there, shouldn't be bothered to much as this movie is clearly made for those who enjoy to watch nice made fighting on the screen.

    Its a good popcorn flick to watch again and again, and I hope that Wu Jing will return in a new movie in a near future!
    HK is shining again thx to Wu Jing

    January 28, 2007 Tsui Hark Does It Again Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    In the sequel to Swordsman I again Tsui Hark makes a beutiful film that now years later when its finally is released digitally remastered, looks the way it always should have.

    As the first one this ain't an all action filled film but a drama kind of film made with interesting battles as its of course made in HK, lots of wire-fu is involved in the film but its very well executed and looks really good!

    If you liked the first film Im sure you will like this one and if you like this one you would own "east is red" the 3rd installment to make the collection complete.

    January 24, 2007 Triad Film Done Great! Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    That Johnnie Too can make good triads films are nothing new. And Exiled is not going to disappoint anyone out there that likes his other films.
    Once again the story surrounds around triad members and their lives.

    As always when it comes down to Too films I like the way he films his scenes its simple but beautiful and the gun fights are again awsome to watch.
    The scenery are being held quite sinmple but still are very beautiful to see.
    The colours are a bit hold back to make this film feel a bit more real and "ugly", I think its a way for Too to make the films feel more terrible, being a triad member is not a dance on roses I belive.

    This dvd has good sound and good picture which is nice! So its a good version of the film if you go with the HK release

    September 3, 2006 Maybe a bit to much Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
    Don't get my headline wrong, this is a good soundtrack album. Sadly 2 cd's is a bit much as they contain every single song made into this game.
    And sadly after a while some songs starts to sound very, very simular to eachother.

    But if we put that aside for a moment; This sonudtrack do contain lots of lovley tunes for your years to focus on! and its a joy to relive the happy moments/sad moments during this games lengthy storyline.

    Maybe a "best of" single cd of this game would do it the best, but as long as this is what to buy, I don't see why anyone should miss it if they are fans of good quality rpg music.

    September 3, 2006 Awsome Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    What can I say! This soundtrack contains all the best tracks for the game! No it does not include every single little music thing you can hear in the game. Instead they have focused on bringing down all the best memorial tunes you can ask for.

    From the music in Midgar to the battle with sepiroth!

    And it does not get worse that the last 3 songs on this album is re-made using a full orchestra to bring the songs to life 150%!

    It is once of the best RPGs made to date and this album is one of the best gaming albums made to date!

    If you liked the game and you liked the music I bet you will looove this cd.

    Only complaint I have is Japaneese companies don't care to insert english texts on game soundtracks so once again; get the correct translated track list from the net!

    September 3, 2006 Interesting Adventure Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    Comparing this one to the first one is like comparing banans with apples..
    Its so much better in every area of filming.

    The plot is more interesting, even though its nothing superior fancy. Characters are more interesting and the action is heavier and more of it aswell!

    All in all, this is a film that gives you what HK cinema does best.. action and comic!

    If you want to see one good adventure movie, check this one out!
    Also the fight between Jackie and Donnie is aswsome!

    August 24, 2006 Warm and Funny drama/action Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    Yeah that would be the best way to describe this film actually. When I first saw this one a while back I really liked the drama and action parts of the film.

    the main actors plays their roles really great and makes it belivable that a situation like this can happen, even if the chances are more than slim *haha*

    Anyhow.. great acting, really good story, funny moments, sad moments, romantic moments and action moments..

    I fully recomend this movie..

    July 24, 2006 Beutiful.. Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
    I guess most people have seen this film or at least heard of it as the Swordsman series are quite known these days.

    This version thath as been digitally remastered still has its flaws when it comes to picture quality but still its alot better than the org. version.

    The film is not an action packed movie as some ppl think it is but it has its moments of figthing, very well perfomred indeed.

    the strength of this film in my opinion is the story that is very nice indeed.

    I recommend to get this one Swords man II and East Is Red to have all 3 in your collection

    Armour Of God I and II are two great films starring Jackie Chan and his stunt team

    Armour of god I is a bit slower than the second but still it has a few great stunts (as we all has learned to love with Jackie and his team)

    This remastered versions of these two films (finally!) has ALOT better video quality than the old releases though the sound is not much to talk about, overall its cleaner but nothing much a few, weird, sound effects has been placed here and there.
