L.O.R.D: Legend of Ravaging Dynasties (Animated Action 2016)

So did you know that in some larger cities you can watch foreign movies on the big screen? Seems like Vegas is one of those cities and you can see them at key AMC theaters. I've been keeping my eye out and this past weekend 3 Asian movies showed up. We picked this weird-sounding film that supposedly was popular back in China; I didn't even watch a preview.

To put it lightly, I could've put a little bit more money into my 401k and would've been more satisfied instead of wasting it on this garbage. This movie was an odd animated film about some story that would've come straight out of some half-rate fantasy Asian MMO. Seriously. Think about that for a second. Picture an average Chinese or Korean MMO game, now picture the storyline and/or cutscenes, and bam you have this film. I recently saw Warcraft and at least that movie had a story to go along with it...this one was just a mess. Special powers, special mobs, fancy character titles, and a setting that had next to no backstory. I didn't give a rat's ass about any of the characters, I barely knew what was going on plot-wise, and they kept on making these very bad scene jumps that had no connecting content. Horrible movie-making.

Suffice to say this has turned me off to foreign films for a while...I'll have to be much more picky in the future and not think that only the best made it to US shores, because holy shit it didn't.
