Beautiful, amazing nonviolent, bloodless fights with the fighters leaving each other in strange peace, seizing reluctantly its prey. Contemplative when has to, but enough action.

The film is set during the mighty Tang Dynasty-period in Chinese history. Nie Yinniang returns to family after several years in exile. The mission of her order is to eliminate the tyrany of the Governors who avoid the authority of the Emperor. Now she will have to choose between sacrificing the man she loves, or break definitively with the "order of the Assassins".

"Beautiful film, but there was too much nothing going on. Fight scenes were nicely done, but there wasn't many of them."

My Movie Diary 2016 (235 movies items)

" 10.28 Hou Hsiao-Hsien's period martial arts art film about a dutiful assassin has the most beautifully photographed stills serving style and substance to an otherwise lackluster story and somber acted characters. "

"Not a real chambara but a naturalistic movie with the beautiful Shu Qi. Just a little too static."

My movie year 2016 (666 movies items)

"4.8. (Teatteri/DCP) Taas jotenkin vaikea ymmärtää tämän megalomaanista arvostusta. Nätti katsella, mutta sisällöltään tusinatasoa - itse asiassa mikään ei tuntunut tältä alueelta jääneen mieleen. Äänisuunnittelu tuntuu omituiselta: välistä musa soi todella hiljaa, sitten puhe iskee päälle täysillä ja päinvastoin. En tosin tiedä oliko ongelma vain DCP:ssä, duunikaverini mukaan The Assassin oli näytetty aikoinaan Sodankylässä perspallina päin vit..."

"First viewing - March 28th I've heard great things about The Assassin, so when I saw it hit Netflix I immediately made plans to watch it. From the opening it's obvious that the film will be slow-paced, so I accepted that fact & did my best to hang with it. Sometimes a slow pace works so well that you don't mind it, but I wouldn't say that's the case here at all. The whole film is beautifully composed & if visuals are all you care about then I guess you'll enjoy this one. If you care about stori"
