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

The imaginative effects in the movie was so breathtaking as well as the story.
Ronell Paltoo
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
Dialogue is crystal clear and the sword fights and the clanging of steel upon steel sounds good, despite not being a 5.1 mix.

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.

Good story, actually teared up at the finish. If you are a fan of Asian movies, this would be a good one to watch.

Other reviewers here have given an in depth look at this amazing film so I will not. Cho Seung Woo and Soo-Ae are perfect and amazing in their roles and the story is first rate. I gave this film 5 stars because it sits at the upper third of my "All-Time 10 Best Asian Films." I love especially Korean cinema and you will find no more engaging cinematic hero than Cho Seung Woo anywhere, and that's a promise. If you want to fall in love, see this film.

THE FIGHT SCENES ARE EXCELLENT. THIS TALE OF A MASTER SWORDSMAN WHO BECOMES THE QUEEN'S PERSONAL GUARD AND TAKES ON EVERY CHALLENGE TO PROTECT HER IS QUITE AN ABSORBING DRAMA SINCE HE'S ALSO IN LOVE WITH HER. HE TAKES ON ANY AND ALL COMERS WHO THREATEN HER

This was a good movie for movie's sake. It touches on a time period/culture that is rarely given any face time in cinema(I know there are many Korean films out there, but not so many that cover this subject matter). The scenery, costume, and set design are gorgeous! And while there IS action in this film, there is much more going on within the personal relationships of the Queen and her Bodyguard. It almost has sort of a Romeo and Juliet quality to it.

As for the title of this review...the action in this movie is pretty intricate and plays liberally with human physics. It's a lot of fun to watch when those scenes are up. However, they don't last very long and are somewhat spread out (which is fine because the movie isn't all about action). The end of this movie was somewhat anticlimactic for how BA this leading character was supposed to be. I won't put any spoilers in place about the ending, but the reason I gave this review its particular title is because our hero doesn't actually wield a sword until the last 15 minutes of the film. Instead, he opts for this very cleaver-shaped broad knife as his weapon of choice. He uses it well, but I'm not sure how they came up with the title of this film using that as a reference.

Overall, this is an enjoyable watch. As for my taste, I would have probably rented it instead. I did not love it enough to watch more than maybe twice a year.
