4.0 out of 5 stars Solid entertainment 12 Dec 2010
By Chinatown Blue TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is a very traditional foray into the territory of the Chinese martial arts epic, with all the expected elements; wire flying, improbable stunts, glorious battle scenes, incredible sets and scenery, and (spoiler alert!) no happy endings. If there's anything in that which you don't care for, you probably won't like this film. If, on the other hand, you have enjoyed the likes of House of Flying Daggers, Battle of Wits, or Red Cliff, this is definitely one to watch. The script actually makes a lot more sense than most of these genre movies, and ignore previous reviewers - the subtitles are perfectly comprehensible (there are one or two slips in use of English, but nothing you can't easily correct for yourself) and I never found them to interfere with the fight scenes. There is no dubbed version on the blu ray, but if you can read you can enjoy this anyway. Unlike another reviewer I did not find the sound effects overdone at all, can't help wondering if they have something wrong with their sound system; there are some instances where sound is deliberately heightened for a specific impact in a scene, and I found it a clever use of sound and as appropriate as the occasional use of slow motion to enhance a scene. The music is excellent, very stirring at appropriate points, and romantic at others. The cast are superb, and fulfil their roles to perfection. On blu ray, the sound is sharp and clear, and the picture quality is really stunning. One or two times I was a bit dubious over whether a particular visual effect was intended, or some unexpected consequence of the transfer, but having seen the same part on a friend's dvd copy, it was intentional and another of the innovative uses of sound and visual by the director. I found this a real treat, even if there was nothing very original in the plot; a banquet for the eyes and ears, and a very satisfying experience.

3.0 out of 5 stars 14 Blades 14 April 2011
By dj666
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I found it a little hard to follow,
as the subtitles are small and are gone before you finish reading them! I lost track of who was who,
what they were doing and why! In the end i just gave up and watched the action,
of which there is plenty.
The blu-ray transfer is superb,rich in colour and detail,
some of the shots are stunning.Sound is superb,
blu-ray extra's are thin on the ground,
but who cares!

***Some smallish spoilers in review***

Having recently watched Donnie Yen in IP Man i was keen to watch some of his other films. So i bought 14 Blades..little did i know what an Epic Masterpiece awaited me. I think this is one of his finest roles. He plays as Qinglong the leader of the Jinyiwei a sect of blademasters and secret police force who serve the Emperor and who are pretty much above the law. Anyway he is betrayed in a plot involving the exiled Prince Qing (Sammo Hung) who is trying to usurp power away from the Emperor. The love interest is Zhao Wei (she was very good in Red Cliff though her character in 14 blades is a bit more somber!). Other notables include the Flying Eagles(?) clan leader Judge (Wu Chun) and Qinglong's nemesis the invincible assassin Tuo Tuo (Prince Qing's daughter).

The last fight scene is seriously almost legendary in the way it is set up and the build up to the final confrontation. I am not sure i have seen a better fight scene. Though to be honest i think they should have made more of Tuo Tuo's role in the film. We only see her killing and annihilating those in her way, we dont explore her character or relationship with her father.

Ending is a bit sad but honourable in the Jinyiwei tradition. What can i say an Epic!

*edit picture and sound quality was excellent (1080p) playing on a HD projector with PS3.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great film, shame about the Blu-ray quality 25 Oct 2011
Format:Blu-ray
I don't need to repeat the rave reviews about the story or Donnie Yen's master performance. But I did want to mention the very poor transfer to Blu-ray. There are stunning set pieces spoiled due to over-sharpening. White fringes around any detail is a tell-tale sign that someone thought they could give us BLu-ray quuality just by applying sharpening to a DVD version without going back to the master film and starting from scratch. Really dissapointing, and the film looks much better upscalled from DVD in a BLu-ray player. I strongly advise you not to waste your money on the Blu-ray version - it's one of the seemingly increasing number of cheap video/DVD conversions to Blu-ray that are steadily giving HD a bad name.

5.0 out of 5 stars The things you can do with a box full of blades 18 Aug 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Loved this film. Donnie Yen put in a great performance and all the supporting actors are great as well. One fight got on my nerves due to the CG used in it but the rest were perfect, especially like the first and last battles. The weapons deserve a special mention, whoever designed them done a great job as even the normal swords look exotic and stylish. The main characters have custom blades and bows which i would love to have mounted on my wall as they look great.

Nice story, nice characters, great sets (The last fight set is top notch), great effects and props. The action scenes do not disappoint, nice mix of full contact, Sword play, wires, a little CG, and acrobatics.

Wei Zhao is fast becoming an actress to keep an eye on, loved her in acting in Red Cliff and Mulan. Her ability to make each character she plays alive and realistic makes her support role in this film a pleasure to watch.

Overall, a great film with just a few little flaws which i enjoyed a lot. Can't wait for Wei Zhao or Donnie Yens next films. Daniel Lee done a great job and i will also be watching out for his next movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Samurai film.
Not on par with the Seven Samurai, but modern technology gives way to 'en masse' fights within a small village. Good sequences and action. One of the better ones.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shame about the subtitles
If you are a fan of 'Crouching Tiger' or 'Flying Daggers' you will love this film. It is full of action and excitement but it also has its quieter, tender moments as well. Read more
