butterfly and sword is a movie with many flaws, but it makes up for it with some of its over-the-top fight scenes and a few really amazing shots. the editing is really choppy, some of the effects are cheesy, and the plot is just barely coherent. but i’ll forgive all of that for the scene where a carriage is carried into place among the treetops and anchored into place by ribbons that shoot out of it. some of the acting is pretty good, too.
