You will be on the edge of your seat.

It was just so boring.

The fact that it's confusing people into thinking it was a studio movie is technically a really good thing.

Barren wastelands, samurais and a predictable storyline...

If you enjoyed the DUNE mini-series, it's worth watching...

Well filmed yet very boring .

You've got to admit, that makes it sound intriguing and interesting.

The rest was boring.

And the movie did suffer from being rather predictable, as you knew exactly how the movie would end right from the very beginning.

That was the only one where it was exciting.

The characters in the film went well together, the comedic antics of the 2 hustlers in the "horde" were very entertaining.

good scene and boring script.

The story line was communicated well, Overall the film to me was an enjoyable.

By far the worst movie I have ever seen, just plain awful.

Slow, boring and with painfully uninteresting fight scenes, Hirokin plays like a slow burning Japanese samurai epic, well it feels like it in running time, but has the flair of a film students documentary on watching paint dry.

Aside from that, the film came off as being rather dull.

It's one saving grace is the film's costume design, which steals from the Star Wars video game Knights of the Old Republic (Sith specifically), however there is plenty of bland costume design as well.

)Anyway, saw the film in high def last week and the landscape shots were breathtaking, I liked the storyline and that machine where you are chained and need to fight to save your loved one is absolutely awesome.

Incredibly entertaining.

Intelligent & thrilling fast paced movie with layers!.

The story aside from being highly derivative is dull, lacking in any thrills or fun and so predictable to the extent that you are constantly correctly guessing what happens next.

This would have been HUGE if it was release now It's very clever and intricate and challenges modern society - whilst adding suspense, humor, love and gripping story lines.

This low budget sci-fi film is cheesy but entertaining for anyone that enjoys sci-fi B movies.
