The Storm Warriors
So the Japanese warlord Lord Godless desires to conquer China and its up to Cloud, Chu Chu, Nameless, Wind, Second Dream, Piggy King and Lord Wicked to stop him. You might think how could such a… Collection, of silly names make a good movie. Well your wrong, its awesome.
The Storm Warriors actually follows the 1998 The Storm Riders, which sucked well .. It did have some good ideas but it was made tragic by its budget. But they must have made a believer of some rich dude because there back, with there ideas and some cash to make them happen.
One of the reasons I like The Storm Warriors is that its just a bit different, It’s what I wish Dragon Ball Z would have been with the short crazy dialog, uncomfortably long stare downs and visual over the top power ups. On the negative side, I found myself saying something during the movie that I cant recall I’ve ever said before..”Please stop fighting and tell me what the heck is happening..TELL ME WHAT YOUR THINKING!!!”.. It left quite the bitter taste in my mouth but there it is. I’ve really been teased with such little information about a central story line, often it felt like they were completely ignoring it.. and me…
The story starts around Lord Godless, but you come to realize its really just about the relationship between Wind and Cloud the two male heroes. Their two adoring females Chu Chu , and Second Dream…. Ha ha haaarr Second Dream…These two hardly get anything to do in this movie. Wind and Cloud are forced to train in totally different styles under different masters. Cloud under Nameless the good way, the hard way and Wind, the quick and easy way, the evil way, under Lord Wicked. Who’s good… We know its evil training because Wind’s training consists of bathing in the ‘Evil Pool’. So when they meet up to fight Lord Godless, trouble ensues..
So a moral tale you say. So true. There is a twist at the end but the Movie Slayer only gives those away to movies he doesn’t like, and I found this movie, fun. I get bored of the same old Hollywood story lines and as you’ve possibly noticed this movie is spazzy but cool spazzy as the effects are creative and the story intriguing ..The little bit they give you that is.
