Meh.... it wasn't too great, but it wasn't too horrible either. I thought it was kind of boring, but oh well... It got horribly cheesy in some parts, and as much as I love cheese and think that Primus sucks, it was a bad kind of cheese... like the stupid snow falling in the field at the end... I did like the bamboo fight though, but it wasn't nearly as cool as the bamboo forrest fight scene in Butterfly and Sword (watch that lol)

... was Not Very Good. Could be thought of as an Infernal Affairs in period costume (Andy goes undercover, gets a bit tortured mentally, then goes a totally mental).

This was a beautiful movie. The setting, background, and story made it unique in comparision to all other martial art flicks. Zhang Ziyi is hot too.

House of Flying Daggers was directed by Zam Yimou, maker of Hero, Raise the Red Lantern, etc. with stunning cinematography and smart plots twists. Maybe I was too young to remember, but I always thought the surrealism wasn’t present in his earlier films... but it did in this one and towards the end I think it really distracted the audience (ie. it made ppl laugh in the final battle where the girl just wouldn't die…) I did partially enjoy the film, stuff like the spectacular visuals and use of colour is just brilliance that cannot be denied.
