With all due respect to Jun-ik Lee's wacky send-up of Asian siege and battle movies, it didn't stand a chance with me this morning. For one, I watched it right after screening Takashi Miike's 13 Assassins. A mistake in retrospect, as how could any movie follow what is perhaps the best Samurai film I've ever seen, let alone one with a completely different tone. The next big X against my enjoyment of the film is the fact that half the subtitles were cut from the version of the film I had. With its huge cast of players, this film was already confusing, so *Sighs* with those two things in mind take this mini-review with a grain of salt.
Battlefield Heroes is Lee's follow-up to his own hit 2003 hit Once Upon
