Forbidden Warrior is a strange Western production that apes a Chinese martial arts epic but uses a confusing mess of a setting. The setting is Cathay (China) inhabited by a Yamato tribe (Japanese) that very obviously employs Korean and Western actors.
The acting is poor, and the production has a kitchy feel that is more at home in a family movie rather than an action one. The orchestral score is overblown and the direction theatrical.
There is no real conclusion, as apparently the movie hoped to be the first of a trilogy.
Sung Kang features, but the movie is otherwise not recommended.
