Fantasy at its bestBy seriden (3 reviews) from West Midlands , 13 Aug 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]True Fantasy film with great visuals, swords and magic just what you want from a fantasy film. With cool characters and a great story well worth a watch. Didn't know it was a sequel so I may watch Storm riders now.

Avoid like the plague!By a customer , 27 Apr 2013A film with no real story and no real narrative, it is painstakingly dull and boring. This film is extremely vague and does not even try to explain itself. All the actors are drama queens and the only attachment you find is the feeling that you want them all to die. I have seen many bad films in my time but damn this even worse than 'the trumpet swan'. Avoid like the plague!
More than a storm in a teacup!By MrMovieBluff (6 reviews) from Coventry , 07 Jan 2013I'm a big fan of fantasy/kung-fu films and this film didn't disappoint. While it's not the best film of this genre I've ever seen, it was still very entertaining and the effects and choreography were excellent. Have just found out it's actually a sequel so going to have to watch the original now!!
Excellent swords and magicBy LeighIveta (3 reviews) , 25 Dec 2012I don't write many reviews but this chinese movie with swords and magic was much better than I expected... with a good story too. the special effects and scenes were well thought out and the fighting is fantastic....
Tiny TempestBy Rigamortis (95 reviews) from South London , 18 Mar 2012There's no fantasy like Japanese/Chinese/Korean ... generally eastern fantasy. The rich, deep culture of stories and legends never mind the true epic events that shaped most eastern societies leave a deep well from which the creative story tellers can draw. And this is no exception. However, the fantasy gets a bit over enthusiastic about itself sometimes and there are lots of meaningful stares that to a western eye mostly mean absolutely nothing. Also, as a sequel, too much is assumed about the viewer's relationship with the characters. Having not seen The Eye it still seems obvious that the makers have decided not to fill you in on the back story and proceed as though you are familiar with the history. This leaves me a little cold. Some films can throw you right in at the deep end with a couple of armbands, but this one just hopes you know enough to swim with the tide. Nevertheless, this is an engaging film to watch as it contains sublime special effects that surpass the hokey karoake kabuki acting and overblown intensity. Some stellar combat and sorcery moments you will lurrve like a foxy lady. On the whole worth seeing, but you may consider it a storm in a tea cup.
Storm WimpBy Praf007 (50 reviews) from Wembley , 16 Jan 2012I have to say the CGI is brilliant, not even Hollywood could touch. But you have to get used to the names like Cloud, Wind etc. the fight scenes can a bit tiresome and I found myself fast forwarding. Plot is not that great. Overall nothing to get excited about.
