I agree. I thought it was a really good film, but had a tough time with the accents, especially Carradine's.

Not sure if you read the story yet, but the narrative races along much quicker than the film. I like better Scott's pacing. There's a truer sense of the long passage of time, and more of a sense of quiet between the intensity of the duels.

And as a martial artist, I loved the incredible length they stayed in the en garde stance (it must have been over a minute), which really helped build the tension.


Agreed about the pacing I'm in Part Three of the story. My only reservation was the casting really, but I suspect that was something a producer insisted on for the American market-otherwise they might not get a return on their investment.
