Review: With colors that work modestly well together, but a balance of images that doesn’t feel compelling, this design is satisfactory, but uninspiring.

Review: Zhang Yimou is a great director and his period dramas can be exciting. The trailer doesn’t quite set up the stakes for the film as the audience is left to cobble together the film’s purpose. That won’t help it find an audience.
