I am surprised to see suck a low average rating on this movie here. Being a huge wuxia/period fan I am naturally a little biased, but it totally blew my mind. The first half was an interesting build-up of character and plot, the second exploded into a climax I haven't seen the likes of for quite some time.

I am usually not a huge Gong Li fan but she was FANTASTIC in her role as the... read more

I'm always entertained by quasi-historical dramas that have an interesting plot coupled with good acting and direction. This fits the bill very nicely. I was very impressed by Chow Yun Fat's performance. His cold cruelty and brutality were a change from his other roles that I've seen over the years. Gong Li was brilliant too as the suffering queen. The acting was good to exceptional throughout.read more

Beautiful.

Some of the most breathtaking & gorgeously intricate background set designs ever in a film. So rich are the colors & exquisite details in this movie, that it requires multiple viewings just to be able to soak it all in. Once one can get passed that aspect of the film, it will become obvious that the sets are not a distraction, but an enhancement to the story. An enrichment that adds to the dialogu... read more

"First viewing - Apr. 24th I needed a break from white people, so I opted to check out Curse of the Golden Flower. It was OK. The story was interesting, there are some decent action sequences, the entire film is visually gorgeous, and apparently it's based on real events to boot. The costumes and set design are often jaw-dropping. Only trouble was it never engaged me on any deeper level, which meant it was a fairly passive experience. Thus I wouldn't sit through it again, but it was worth a look"

"9.3. Aika vaivaannuttava malliesimerkki siitä, miten (kiinalaisittain) valtaisat rahasummat voi tuhlata epäolennaisuuksiin. Toki elokuvasta löytyy vaikuttavia joukkokohtauksia, joissa pelkkä hervottoman ihmismassan liikehdintä tekee hetkestä visuaalisesti näyttävän. Valitettavasti Zhang Yimoun keisarillinen juonitteluspektaakkeli on sisällöllisesti aika puuduttavaa selkäänpuukottamista vailla selkeitä kiintopisteitä. Yhdestäkään hahmosta ei saa minkäänlaista emotionaalista o"
