This is one of the best movies I have ever seen! I have been very much a fan and student of martial arts, although the scenes show things that are beyond what we believe humanly possible this is legends of Chinese culture same as we all have our own culture and beliefs. This movie shows such talent from the actors, one being an actor mainly in Chinese theatre whom had no experience of martial arts locking horns with some of the best such as Jet Li! I would say to watch this movie if you enjoy martial arts movies, epics, Romance movies or even just want to see something different. Its a very moving film.

  different yet moving in a way

| | See all Surferosh's reviews (9)

i saw this film on TV the first time and was mesmerised by the use of colours in story narration ! the wire work stunt scenes are very beautifully choreographed and though many will say that the stunts are way over the top i believe that they are in keeping with Chinese philosophy and martial arts concepts...
the way the story is unfolded is very nice.. and there are some very moving moments in the film.. for people who like martial arts with a story and a touching element, this is a must watch film.. am glad i got it on DVD...

I dont understand the hype with this film from the trailers it draws people in but the trailer shows the best parts, people were walking out of the cinema in this film siting there watching this film for 1 hour and 36mins it felt like 3 hours and if i wasn't on a date i to would have walked out and saved myself the pain of watching this film.

  Mesmerising

| | See all daniel18387's reviews (2)

I regard this film as a definite purchase, the scenes, the layout, the idea, hell...even down to the colours they've got this one spot on. The idea that calligraphy and swordsmanship should be considered the same makes the film all the more special....

Plus its based on true events.

  my fav movie

| | See all Rags44's reviews (1)

this is my fav movie, make sure you watch it on a big hd screen,(its a waste to watch this on a small screen) its the most scenic movie ever, it has a great storyline, good acting and some good martial art scenes. this movie is like the chinese pulp fiction, but replaces the comedy of pulp fiction with romance and other emotions. the movie was made by a chinese production company a few years ago however miramax bought it and re-released and i think quentin tarantino and others took credit for it...however they just bought the rights to it. or somethin like that

  Beautifull and Mesmerising

| | See all OOCJOO's reviews (9)

when i first bought this and watched it i wasnt incredibly impressed, i merely enjoyed the fighting.

However, i feel as though my appreciation of films has developed alot since then and i watched it the other day, and i just thought it was incredible. The locations and images are amazing (e.g. in the autumnal forest, and the still lake near the end).
To my own suprise i also found the first fight ,between 'Nameless' and Sky, beautiful, it felt more like a dance between two people of complete understanding of one another.

I also read on the box right near the end that it was directed by Quentin Tarantino, and since he is my favourite director, this film has become one of my favourite in my collection - which i assure you is no mean feat.

  Quality Film! Gets Better Everytime!

| | See all RockyRules's reviews (1)

This Film is immense. It has a little bit of everything in it, Fighting/action, twists and turns, romance, strong characters, and a meaninful plot. This is a film for people who like classic chinese martial films, with great fight scenes and emotion.

It was very well cast, as all the characters were believable in their given roles.

It is a must buy for all the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and House Of Flying Daggers fans and even for people who want to get into chinese martial arts films.

It really does get better everytime you watch it. Quality film.

  Gorgeous

| | See all TopCat1984's reviews (68)

This film is stunning. The use of colour to convey emotions is visually stunning and cleverly used. The fight scenes between Donnie Yen and Tony Leung are outstanding . Maggie Cheung who plays Snow is perfectly cast as the courageous and feisty swordswoman. This is her first action role, but she is flawless on screen and was born to pick up a sword. This film is on par with Crouching Tiger and House of Flying Daggers. It's a must see.
