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.

A very good movie

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

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.

Las películas más pendejas que he visto (92 movies items)

"La película tiene buena fotografía y coreografías de combate, el problema es que da tantos giros sin ninguna base que termina desechando toda la historia principal en favor de un triangulo amoroso inesperado que acaba en tragedia. Según avanza la película te das cuenta de que la protagonista sea "ciega" es un elemento completamente irrelevante."

"FORMAT: 35mm CONDITION: ★★★★ NOTES: Plays seamlessly despite a single scratch overlaying the whole print. Third reel is in a noticeably different tint to the previous two. But most importantly, gosh, does this film look stunning when you watch it this way. DATE: May 3rd 2023 CINEMA: The Prince Charles Cinema LOCATION: West End"

35 From 4: My Favorite Films From 2004 (35 movies items)

"   As someone who became a rather hardcore fan of movies starting at a very early age, I grew up at a time when it was widely accepted that big budbget actions flicks were the kind of cinema that had to sacrifice on story in order to make room for the expansive bangs and the expensive effects that acted as the fuel for this type of widescreen entertainemnt.
