If I'm not careful, I will start overusing the phrase "visually stunning." I seem to be watching a lot of pretty movies lately anyway.

At the start, this seems to be pretty much the standard boy meets girl, boy arrests girl, boy breaks girl out of jail, boy goes on lam with girl movie. Ah, but even after that, there are a lot of twists and turns, double crosses, star-crossed lovers, and intrigue. And lots and lots of bamboo.

I wish George Lucas had seen this before making Revenge of the Sith.
