Very good adventure drama.
Since there's only 1 other review, I'll add some thoughts. Mostly I echo a lot of what Manuli says in their review, and I might have even enjoyed it a bit more than they did? I'll definitely be re-visiting this one, I had a good time!
It's got a good amount of light moments, it's got some heavier moments that don't at all feel as heavy as they would if the light mood weren't prevalent, and it works very well all-around. The scope of what was covered in the story without it feeling 'loose' or shoddy was impressive. It made me want to know more about the main location of interest and get more stories from its lore, but at the same time it did not make me feel like it was lacking in what it had at all. Every character in the movie was well-done, from the mains to the handful of secondaries.
Very minimal on the martial-arts and what bits there are are not at all stand-out choreographed scenes or anything, but the fight scenes are still good because they're compelling, well-acted, and well-directed, just like the rest of the movie.
Very good and unique story very well directed. Definitely recommended.
