House of Flying Daggers is an amazing, breath taking, visual feast of epic proportions. Daggers is more straight forward, with double and triple crosses to twist the stories narrative. Daggers also blends a very heavy love story amidst all the action, between the three leads Jin, Leo and Mei.
House of Flying Daggers is visually deep and rich. The colours leap of the screen, with brilliant cinematography. The fight sequences are simply stunning; superbly choreographed action. The fight in the bamboo forest is just jaw dropping.
As the blind dancer Mei, Zhang Ziyi is such a beautiful actress, its hard not to take your eyes off her. Takeshi Kaneshiro is charismatic as Jin. Andy Lau brings a strong performance as Leo.While the story might be contrived, House of Flying Daggers is an amazing feast of cinema, it's hard not to be swept up in its beauty
