Shiny swords!
There's no budget, no script editor and stunningly average acting. (*)
Good performances, interesting story, quite touching and tear jerking at the end, nice plot twist
None really, that I can think of (*)
The cinematography, production design and costume
The casting, scripting and some of the acting; Feels rushed and sketchy (*)
