The 7 Grandmasters vs. Ninja Checkmate


Okay. I hear these two movies always compared with each other. (Both Long brothers movies) Anyway, which is better?

I probably slightly prefer Mystery of Chessboxing, as it has a better villain to hold the film together and provide more of a focus. Seven Grandmasters at times just feels like a series of fights loosely held toghether (maybe a criticism of the whole genre at times though, lol).
