Seven Swords is a 2005 wuxia film, an homage to the Kurosawa Seven Samurai film. I found it slow and even annoying in places, but I loved the choreography and the clothes. The Younger Son thoroughly enjoyed it and thought it worthy of a connection with Kurosawa.
It did well in Asia, but it got mostly negative reviews here. A planned sequel appears to be in development hell.
Empire Online closes with this: "What could and should have been great is reduced to the tragically dull. A wasted opportunity of immense proportions." Rotten Tomatoes has a critics score of 25%.
