Good production values, the computer effects were a little too much, October 24, 2011

Korea's own "Queen of Tears". Soo-Ae (Emperor of the Sea, Midnight FM) lights up the screen in this breathtaking epic inspired by tragic, true-life events. Soo-Ae majestically portrays the Joseon Dynasty's legendary Empress Myseongseong, a cherished ruler who fought courageously to modernize Korea. Forced to marry a king she did not love - and embroiled in a brutal struggle between rival world powers - the Empress draws her strength from a dashing rogue, a nameless headhunter who would do
I think they needed to make this about an hour or two longer to have better character development and draw people in to sympathize with the characters and buy into the story.

There isn't much chance for the characters to flesh out there stories or even the background behind this historical drama. The scenery and costumes were great, but the fight sequences were a little over the top and too much like the "300" in having very stylized (and obviously computer generated) graphics.

As her smitten suitor, Seung-woo Cho plays the bounty-hunter-turned-palace-guard...

Korea's Empress/Queen Myeongseong, her story of the Queen during the Joseon Dynasty of Korea is best known in history for standing up against Japan's military and government influence in the East by aligning Korea with Russia but also her tragic story of how she would be assassinated by those she stood up against.Her story is quite fascinating and you can't help but respect what she was able to accomplish but seeing how things unfolded when she became a Queen and her willingness to open Korea to work with representatives of foreign countries.But because of the dramatic and tragic elements of her story and the fact that all photos of the Empress were burned and destroyed, needless to say that the Empress has become a sort of mystery. No known photo exists and needless to say there have been dramatizations of the Queen and because she is such a historic figure, as well as heroic, there have been interest in her.And in the case of "The Sword with No...
