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.

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

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

December Movie Journal - Xanadon't (24 movies items)

" It's an impressive and fun movie that doesn't quite measure up to its cinematic peers, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Hero. Partly due to characterization that simply isn't as compelling. But also it never quite achieves the same effective identity in tone as either of those movies do."

"I had some serious issues with this film as a whole but also has some really excellent and beautiful scenes. Worth a watch, I just didn't get the ending. If someone wants to explain it to me, I'm all ears, I just kind of felt like it fell apart, and was there any resolution to the story line at all?"

“Crouching Tiger has better fights, Hero is beautifully colourful but neither have the emotional impact of Flying Daggers which also is as visually stunning as Hero. Ziyi Zhang is exceptional.” read more
