I expected more. I am a huge fan of Michelle Yeoh. I think she is the best female martial arts superstar. Maybe because of this my exceptions were too high. The plot with character who were supposed to be dead coming back right and left was unnecessary. The love story angle was stupid for lack of a better word. He knew who she was before he married her but made not move against her, nothing with her doing nothing to earn his trust. Someone commented some scenes were missing from the DVD could these have been missed moments that caused their relationship to grow.

The film seemed rushed despite being close to 2 hours long. This is also evident in the subtitles which come at lightning speed. I did have to keep pausing the DVD to read them in case I missed something important.

The martial arts are good I like Yeoh's Water sheath fighting style. Basically she uses a flexible sword that wrap around an opponent's block to cut them multiple times. I thought the extra wire work was unnecessary for a star of Michelle Yeoh's martial arts pedigree. Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon has a lot to answer for. Over all the fights were good but nothing spectular. Like I said I expected more. I have to say having MIchelle Yeoh and a good ending took this film from rounding 3.5 stars up to 4 for me. I would still like to rate it 3.5.

This is a complex love story, which is narrated in a convoluted way,
through a continuous interplay of false identities.
The plot is driven by the frenetic quest for the hallowed, mummified remains
of a monk, which still overflow with mystical Qi energy.
A dreaded cabal of assassins called "Dark Stone" has laid claim to the remains.
Under the leadership of the "Wheel King"-who is not what he seems to be-
the cabal intimidate and murder powerful government officials.
Then "Drizzle", the cabal's most skillful assassin, runs away with half
of the monk's remains. After a tragic sojourn with a Buddhist monk,
she decides to seek redemption for a life of violence.
She changes her face and her identity, and begins a new life as Zeng Jing,
a cloth merchant. She meets and falls in love with a courier called
Jiang Ah-Seng. She marries him, but then the past catches up with her:
All hell breaks loose when the "Dark Stone" discovers that Zeng Jing
is "Drizzle". The conflict impels Jiang Ah-Seng to reveal that he also
assumed a false identity, in his quest for revenge.
In the final showdown in a cemetery, a forlorn, wounded "Drizzle"
faces off against her domineering master, the "Wheel King".
There are several exciting fight scenes in the film.
The assassins of the "Dark Stone" employ radically different fighting techniques:
Lei Bin kills with needles, the "Magician" employs pyrotechnics and magical tricks,
etc. These do not overwhelm the love story. There are numerous humorous
situations, and scenes of touching tenderness and marital bliss.
Michelle Yeoh gives a superb, nuanced performance in the role of Zeng Jing/"Drizzle".
The "making of" feature included in the blu-ray is not subtitled in English.

Once you start watching, you don't want to close your eyes.

I love the 4 weaknesses that she need to learned in order her to win:
1. Hide weak points intelligently.
2. Retain clarity of mind modestly.
3. Avoid becoming aloof and detached.
4. Retreat in order to advance.
Very good weakness to learn in real life.

Excellent movie. Highly recommended

Enjoyed the colourful period costumes and Michele is looking so much better as she ages. Interesting fight scenes too. Engaging.

Such a fun movie but was so disappointed to discover that some scenes were actually missing from my dvd!
There were at least 2 scenes I remembered from the version I watched on tv, which really brought so much more depth, insight and humour to the characters portrayed.
Most disappointed my dvd is not in tact.

John Woo, the action legend behind films like Face/Off, Hard Boiled, Mission: Impossible II and loads more is back with this fantastic movie. Reign Of Assassins is Woo at his finest! I was hugely impressed with the action sequences in this film. They're both frantic and exciting whilst still being beautiful and breathtaking to look at.

Reign Of Assassins offers more than your typical action movie and has a truly heartfelt and emotionally involving plot to it. The character are great and the villain alone is reason enough to check out this movie. What's more awesome that a deadly touch and flaming swords?! The samurai battles are intense and there's plenty of them throughout. Nodding to such Asian action classics as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Hero there's A LOT to love about this movie.

Highly, highly recommended!
