I had looked very much forward to watching "Twin Daggers". I am still glad I watched it, but it would not have been a terrible loss had I let it pass. I enjoy Lion's Gate films. They usually are fairly-well done and the action is not bad, but borders on ridiculous at times. "Twin Daggers" was all of this.
I almost turned it off about 15 minutes into it. I decided to let it run so I didn't have to get up from the couch and change movies :-) Because of that, I did get to see the improvements that came along a few minutes later. The acting is still poor, the fx poor, and the martial arts were okay. I watched the plot. The plot was good, got better, and finished up just fine. Lots of twists and turns (a lot predictable, but some not so much), which I like.
Bottom line: If you like movies that are a bit over the top, acting barely good enough, and a decent plot, go ahead. If you have to be spellbound throughout and all the bells and whistles have to be great, ahhhh...no.
