A spectacular tale of betrayal and revenge featuring some of the most stunning martial arts fighting ever seen on film. Based upon an age old legend, The Assassin's Blade tells the story of a girl, Yan Gi who disguised as a boy, enters the country's greatest all-male martial arts academy. Struggling with the physical strength of her male counterparts Yan Gi finds an ally in the school's top student, Chun Shan, who discovers her secret and tutors her to become one of the most lethal assassins in the academy. The pair eventually fall in love but the girl is betrothed to childhood friend Ma who mebarks on a violent plan of blackmail to ensure that she becomes his wife. When Ma's treachery is revealed, Chun Shan has no choice but to use all that he's learned from the academy to exact justice. From the action director of 'Hero' and 'House of the Flying Daggers'.

From the little I bothered to watch, nothing inspired me to believe I was going to enjoy it nearly as much as Tsui Hark's wonderful version, or Li Han-Hsiang's classic 'Love Eterne'. I did occasionally drop the film back to normal speed, and nothing I saw then convinced me that the fast forward button was a mistake.
The promo blurb compounds the license taken with the title and artwork by claiming the film contains "some of the most stunning martial arts fighting ever seen on film". No, it doesn't... it features a couple of scenes of clearly unskilled people waving weapons around at each other - though an appearance from the actually skilled Fan Siu Wong does bring one scene to some sort of life. Not nearly enough to justify the expectation of the martial arts classic the distributors apparently thought they'd bought the rights to, though.
It's possible I'd have watched - maybe, just maybe, even enjoyed - the film if I'd gone in with appropriate expectations.Read more ›
If you like deep emotional romantic movies full of human twists and plots akin to a Shakespearian tragedy, then this film is 10/10!!! It is brilliant, beautifully shot, funny, very sad and very deep coming from the asian perspective of a very old fashioned romance, unlike the society today where boy meets girl, girl meets boy n off come her knickers!! No this film is more romantic and slushy than anything else.
It`s simular to Hero with the two blokes and one girl scenario as a thread running throughout the film, so no assassins`s blade anywhere to be seen really and I`m not sure who the target audiance of this film was aimed at when making it? My wife who`s not really in2 martial arts fims except, Heros, House of the Fying Daggers and of course Croutching Tiger, absolutly luved this film, but then she would never have looked in the martial arts section to buy a film like this in the first place, so obviously why it flopped with martial arts fans!
It's no such thing. It's just a sentimental love story with a little undistinguished martial arts action thrown in. The heroine's annoying and the hero is just a lovelorn kid. There are no big battle scenes and no armies - just a couple of skirmishes with maybe 20 participants. The picture on the DVD cover seems to have come from a different movie - maybe Battle of Wits or something like it. Anyway, it's pretty misleading. Unless you like soppy love stories with hideously saccharine love songs, give this a miss!
