Ya Ay Ya

 Ya Ay Ya
I personally did not like this film because it was confusing and bit hard to follow. I only understood after we discussed it in class. Besides the not understanding, I liked that it was in black in white. The black and white made the movie seem traditional with the bodyguard guy also being traditional. I also thought the fight scenes were somewhat lame because he would slice someone once and they would go down. The people that he battled with were supposed to be the top warriors of the village and they put of absolutely no fight what so ever. Nevertheless, this is an older movie and the only thing that comes close to the sword fighting is Kill Bill.
However, the part of the story line that I did like was the tension between the two gangs. Movies with rival family are like a classic story line and I liked seeing it in a different language. It made the story relatable to other stories in history. However, it was interesting that the bodyguard was kind of messing with both sides and not really protecting either gang.
I also liked the wife who was in more control than her husband was. We finally have a women character that is not afraid to be in charge, even though was like pretty mean and a bit too controlling. This movie is older and I thought that it was kind of a surprise that a women had a “man’s role”. And in Asians cultures women generally weren’t very powerful so, I liked this. I just wish that I could have followed the movie a bit better maybe I will watch it by myself.
