Synopsis

The fate of the world rests in the ability of three untested warriors to defeat an unearthly army of darkness. Sorcery, martial arts and an unrequited love, spanning the centuries, explode in an epic battle at the gates of the forbidden city. Crimson Wolf is an unusual departure for the Anime genre - rooted in real world reference, it makes the fantasy all the more believeable.

Okay! Is a good sum-up reaction to my stand on the show. A good mixture of Indiana Jones and Charmed(American television show). As the movie progresses i don't think you will find the movie to be easily to anticipate. Which opens a lot of room to surprise and excitement. On some occasions when a movie becomes unpredictable the writer uses easy(cheeky) explanations with the audience. Throwing the general idea of magic, illusion or dream to explain the unexplained. Here when you are surprised you become educated. While the education i can't be certain is 100 percent certain it is at least phrased read more
