Customer Review

on 2 July 2001
The movie was able to really bring the dream-like fantasy world of wu-xia stories to life. Rather than the typical focus of action-only martial arts sequences, it was able to blend emotions and actions into a beautifully orchestrated screenplay.
The main actors - Zhang ZiYi and Michelle Yeoh showed great composure alongside Chow who played the character very well despite having to memorise his lines phonetically. Zhang showed great maturity and intensity in her acting.
The film is truly a cinematic experience, the fighting sequences expertly choreographed and the sound track deeply moving and engaging. Without a doubt, a great effort from Ang.
However, I was disappointed with the content of the DVD, the extra features are not up to my liking.
First of all, the commentary track was more a chit-chat session between Ang and writer James. I would expect more of the director explaining his vision of each shot and the difficulty and experience he had while making the film.
I would also be happier to see the sound track video and interviews with Zhang included in the featurettes.
But overall, the DVD is a good addition to your library and brings a great visual experience to your senses.
