Review of Blade of the Phantom Master (2004)

Moving picture, 87 minutes

A man of mystery travels the world, looking for the reason why the empire who trained him was completely destroyed, leaving him as the last of his kind.

Korean-Japanese collaboration on nihilistic action with a mascot animal, bad J-pop interlude etc. Zombies serve both as an ethereal, costumed army of justice and, in slightly more classical form, as the essential component of an eerie utopia.
