Editorial Reviews

Korea’s own “Queen of Tears”. Soo-Ae (Emperor of the Sea, Midnight FM) lights up the screen in this breathtaking epic inspired by tragic, true-life events.

Soo-Ae majestically portrays the Joseon Dynasty’s legendary Empress Myseongseong, a cherished ruler who fought courageously to modernize Korea. Forced to marry a king she did not love – and embroiled in a brutal struggle between rival world powers – the Empress draws her strength from a dashing rogue, a nameless headhunter who would do anything to be near her. This dark and brooding master of the blade protects the Empress as she stands strong against the sinister forces seeking to colonize her beloved country. When a traitor within the royal family orchestrates a plot to assassinate the Empress, only this anonymous swordsman proves willing to spill his own blood in defense of the noble beauty who would sacrifice her life for the people of Korea.

Customer Reviews

Good quality film.
Holly Schneck
A must watch film that's sure to be a crowd pleaser for men and women alike, but would likely be offensive to a Japanese audience.
bernard mcentee
The imaginative effects in the movie was so breathtaking as well as the story.

THE SWORD WITH NO NAME is a slick, stylish, and wonderful period drama that explores Empress Myeong-seong's tumultuous reign as `the Queen of Korea' during the Joseon Dynasty. The Queen sought to limit Japanese influence within her country, and, to accomplish this, she created stronger bonds with competing nations of the time, such as Russia. Japanese assassins stormed her chambers in 1895 and killed and desecrated her body. SWORD tells her story, alongside that

All of the principles perform outstanding work throughout SWORD. Soo Ae is simply lovely and demure - exactly as you would want a young queen to be - in the role of Myeong-seong; in the start of the picture - shortly after she has been selected by the committee to be Korea's queen - she is quiet and perhaps a bit rough around the edges; however, once she makes the transformation to her chosen role, she lights up the screen. As her smitten suitor, Seung-woo Cho plays the bounty-hunter-turned-palace-guard Moo-myeong with the perfect balance of youthful charisma and cluelessness. He follows his heart, taking his blade along for the journey, to protect the woman he loves with it appears her own government is failing her. Also, Ho-jin Jeon suitably chews scenery (when necessary) as Dae Won-gun, the primary force behind dethroning Myeong-seong for what he believes is a fraudulent reign of his country.

Throughout the picture, Director Yong-gyun Kim maintains a timeless story.

Korea's Empress/Queen Myeongseong, her story of the Queen during the Joseon Dynasty of Korea is best known in history for standing up against Japan's military and government influence in the East by aligning Korea with Russia but also her tragic story of how she would be assassinated by those she stood up against.

Her story is quite fascinating and you can't help but respect what she was able to accomplish but seeing how things unfolded when she became a Queen and her willingness to open Korea to work with representatives of foreign countries.

But because of the dramatic and tragic elements of her story and the fact that all photos of the Empress were burned and destroyed, needless to say that the Empress has become a sort of mystery. No known photo exists and needless to say there have been dramatizations of the Queen and because she is such a historic figure, as well as heroic, there have been interest in her.

And in the case of "The Sword with No Name", the 2009 film receives a romanticized fictional story about the Empress or Queen written by Seol-Rok ya and directed by Yong-gyun Kim ("The Red Shoes"). The film would star actress Soo Ae (or spelled Su Ae, "Athena: Goddess of War", "Love Letter") playing the character of the Empress/Queen Myeong-seong and actor Seung-woo Cho ("Go Go 70's", "Love Phobia", "Marathon").

VIDEO:

"The Sword with No Name" is presented in 1080p High Definition and the picture quality of this film is fantastic. From the vibrant colors outdoors, to the colorful outfits that the Queen and the guards would wear, the colors of the film is what makes this film so beautiful.

The HD release of this film also showcases the textures and details of the clothing but also skin of the characters.

I think they needed to make this about an hour or two longer to have better character development and draw people in to sympathize with the characters and buy into the story. As it is currently, it's feels really rushed between scenes that seem to happen months (or even years) apart. There isn't much chance for the characters to flesh out there stories or even the background behind this historical drama. The scenery and costumes were great, but the fight sequences were a little over the top and too much like the "300" in having very stylized (and obviously computer generated) graphics.

Format: DVD
I've been really going nuts buying asian blu-ray films lately. Well Go USA always has cool previews which only has me going out and buying more asian films. I generally like war films, either ancient or current in the asian genre.

But this movie, I saw at the store, and thought that it looked and sounded interesting. It's not a Well Go USA release, but it is a Korean film which I began to embrace since I've bought "Tai Guk Gi: The Brotherhood of War" and "My Way", so I expected to really enjoy this film.

Well, as a story, which did include fight scenes, didn't really have alot of action as a whole. And, of the action scenes, for them to say that this film was based on true events, I find it ridiculous to think a village peasant can have the martial arts skills of wielding a sword, and can take on 30 or so trained guardians of the castle, and still win.

But, somehow this film seems for likely to appeal to a female audience because of the dragged out platonic romantic implications between the Queen and her peasant guardian who wishes to protect her even against the will of her other guardians.

To imply that he is a man with no name, is to say that he is a man of just mere significance. He was just a peasant, a nobody, and yet he strives for a higher purpose.

This seemed like a movie I'd probably embrace more if it were just a made-for-TV PBS film. To see it as a major cinematic production film, would be to praise it too highly. Out of all the asian films I've bought in the past few months, usually I appreciate the films more when I watch them for a second time. But this film, I don't think I'd watch it again expecting it to be improved in appeal. It didn't have enough twists and angles to think I might have overlooked something.
