Customer Review

on 28 February 2006
The House of Flying Daggers is set in 829 AD. Its is a time where the current 'Tang' Dynasty government is corrupt and a rebellion raises up to topple their regime. However, the story soon turns to the two main characters (Mei and Jin) as they travel to find the rebels base. There are many twists and turns in this story which keep you on the edge of your seat, never knowing what will happen next.
Not only is the story intrigueing, the setting of the film are visually beautiful, along with the perfectly chereographed fight scenes and amazing special effects its a pleasure to watch and truly some of the most magnificent fight scenes ever are produced.
The film however is in Chinese, which is not such a bad thing because it adds to the authenticity of the time and there is not a great amount of dialogue, which means you are not sat reading the subtitles instead keeping up with the actual film.
The film takes another turn to be a three way love story, with the climax being a brilliant battle between the two warriors fighting for a womens love.
Overall an outstanding film, with something for everyone in it.
