House of Flying Daggers – Don't read if you actually want to know what its about!
- Not rated
V. good film, I'm sure. Probably better when silly trainee projectionists don't screw it up and make people look at smelly headers and stupid plastic looking heads. Also a little bloody. I mean, I know its all about fighting and 'flying daggers' and the like, but I've generally found these big chinese films to be quite tasteful in the bloody-ness regions, but the final scene was a little gruesome. Maybe it was the snow. Also, the annoying woman with the not dying ever! I don't think I was really in the mood for this movie, I have to be honest. Although the 'echo dance' bit was way cool, I got a little bored with all the super cool fighting stuff by the end. If thats your thing – then definately go to see it. Although, I think the story line was good – with the not paying attention, I could only really guess at exactly what was going on.
AH, what the hell. Great Movie. Go see. NOW!
