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.

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

I watched this film purely because I was so amazed by the previous films of Yimou Zhang. You kind of go into the film expecting something epic, with grand fights and amazing colours, and while this film delivers on the colours front, there isn't really much else that you would expect.

The first half of the film dragged substantially, I wondered if there would ever be any actual ent... 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

"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"
