Andrea Gronvall weighs in on the new ninja western: "Americans and Asians face off in the Old West in this visually alluring, tongue-in-cheek action fantasy. South Korean superstar Jang Dong-gun plays a swordsman forced to leave the Far East when he refuses to kill the baby girl who poses a future threat to his warrior clan; with the infant in hand, he flees to a fading American gold-rush town to rendezvous with a trusted friend, only to find the man dead and the community terrorized by a maniacal ex-Army officer (Danny Huston) and his gang of Hell Riders. The stunts bristle with invention and the sword fights are elegant in both line and movement. Top-billed Geoffrey Rush has a grand time as a drunken sharpshooter, and Kate Bosworth adds swagger as Huston's knife-throwing nemesis." Trailer after the jump.
