House of Flying Daggers

3 out of 5 stars
Erm this film ran out of steam. Wasn't particularly arty. The first hour took ages. Then you finally realised it was a soppy love story. And it got better in the 2nd hour, things picked up (music, action, story). Coulda been good, but was missing something.


5 out of 5 stars

Good movie, very different from many chinese films I've seen before. This one differs in that its not promoting the power of the sword. Tells the passion and plans of Emperor Qin (who united the states to create China), and how his ideals had made him a target for those who suffered under his rule. Definately worth watching – the visuals are amazing.

Btw I dont' think Jet Li was the Hero, "Broken Sword" was, he's the dude.
