Crouching Tig....Wait, what?

The love and war premise that feels like every other recent martial arts film is well apparent in the House of Flying Daggers. The action was elegant and graceful, but unfortunately the story could not provide enough support for all its beauty.

Artistry and Kickassery, All in One House.

Growing up, it always frustrated me whenever the majority of big budget action flicks or martial arts movies of the time often seemed to sacrifice on story to make room for the expansive bangs & the expensive effects. It was generally said, that in these types of movies, you couldn't really have both, particularly, at a consistent high level. And I was one those kids who always asked "Why not?"read more

Since I really loved 'Hero', I was really eager to check this other effort by by Zhang Yimou. As a matter of fact, he conceived this story in the late 1990s as a companion to Hero. Indeed, it was rather similar in style to his previous picture but it was still very interesting and enjoyable. Personally, I have a huge weak spot for those spectacular Asian movies which feature some awesome impressiv... read more

"25.3.2014 Yimou Zhangille voin nyt ainakin siitä nostaa hattua, että hän on älynnyt pitää huomion juuri suurimmissa osin Kaneshiron, Laun ja Zhangin pääkolmikossa ja jättänyt kaikki liian isot ja eeppiset juonikuviot täysin pois. Elokuvan aikana mainostettu Lentävien Tikarienkin joukkokin tekee lähinnä cameo-esiintymisen, mikä on lähinnä hyvä asia. Ei se nyt siltin yksinään pysty tekemään tämän metsäjuoksentelusta ja kolmiodraamailusta niin mielenkiintoista katseltavaa,"

Movie Reviews (part 8) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: It looks wonderful. Has a simple but epic love story of typhical Asian tradition. It is tragic like no other land can make them. Exciting action. Magical moments. This is a romantic action fantasy of the type that the Chinese can make so fantastic. Memorable battles in a snowblizz, bamboo forest and in fields. Visually it is a feast for the eyes. Excellent use of folk music. The Downs: It doesn't thread any new paths but I couldn't care less with this film."

Why Apekki loves the art of cinema (11 movies items)

"Wu-Xia Chinese mythologies and culture combined to martial arts fighting, a genre just for me. These movies are also so beautiful that you could basically pause the movie at any time and make a painting out of the scene. The only negative side is that there are too few of these, or at least that I know of. "
