'Blades of Blood' Is Almost Really Good
On one hand it's a sweeping story of political intrigue, personal revenge, and familial honor. On the other, the film is jumbled, overly busy, and never fully delivers on the potential it holds. Blades of Blood begins in , on the eve of the Japanese invasion of Korea. Even though their borders are about to be breached, the majority of the governmental officials are caught up in lame power struggles and ineffectual bureaucracy that is little more than endless bickering and tedious maneuvering. Lee Mong-hak Cha Seung-won sets out to raise a rebel army, a so-called Grand Alliance, in order to not only bring peace to his homeland, but also protect his nation from foreign incursion. The Alliance is action oriented, in direct opposition to the constantly squabbling political parties of the day, though you are never quite sure if Lee acts out of true patriotism or a greedy lust for power.
