Critics Reviews

Los Angeles Times
House of Flying Daggers finds the great Chinese director at his most romantic in this thrilling martial arts epic that involves a conflict between love and duty carried out to its fullest expression.

Time
The cast list is like a convocation of the Three Chinas: Taiwan's Kaneshiro, Hong Kong's Lau and the mainland's Zhang Ziyi. All are terrific, but the lady shines brightest.

Holy crap! House of Flying Daggers was a "holy crap" kind of movie. As in, every 3.5 minutes, I turned to my girlfriend and said "Holy crap!" Every six minutes I said"Did you see that!" Like she could miss it, sitting six feet away from the...
