The setup: A crippled and embittered doctor travels to a hidden community in Tibet where he learns of his true destiny as the Sorcerer Supreme of his world.
The verdict: I finished this film, thinking, "There are people out there suffering and I can do something to help them!" It is essentially a mystery with political overtones. It's fun watching it. Its complexity begins within its characters. A little too slow-paced for a film. The urge to just walk away almost got me a couple of times. But, in the end, this is okay. All the characters struggle against a system that has perpetuated falsehoods. Against this backdrop, our heroes must fight.
