I'm still not sure about this...

it looks really cool, but if the game really is entirely QTE, wouldn't I rather just watch a movie?

Heavy Rain was cool, cause it had some stuff to break up the QTE gameplay, and it had different choices.
Dragon's Lair was cool because it had multiple paths, and different levels.

but the director of Asura's Wrath has gone on to say that his game doesn't have the freedom of other games nowadays, and everything that happens is simply for the progression of the story.

I dunno, if there's only one path through the game, and you're just pressing buttons on top of this big movie sequence, then I'd rather it just be a movie.

There hasn't really been that much info put out about it just yet so it's probably too early to judge.
That said, from what we've seen the game just looks too overly dramatic and self-serious for me.

 "Once the trailer finished up, Tsuchiya and company dove into showing off what the game looks like in motion via a short gameplay clip and an actual live demo. The clip showed a mix of more conventional third-person action gameplay that highlighted the game’s mix of science fiction and mythology more clearly. Tech-looking airships and troop pods were on display, along with assorted enemies. Asura stomped his enemies with his bare hands and used whatever was lying around. We also caught that besides beating foes with his bare hands, air jumps, and grabs, Asura was also able to use ranged gunfirelike shots from one of his arms to shoot enemies from a distance."

Much as I love Jeff, he didn't seem to do a terribly good job at talking about this game, maybe he missed this whole part of the demonstration?

It could be good. I just hope the QTE stuff is kept to a minumum.

From what you said it does not sound like it will be just a movie. Maybe he just means there is no super open world.
