watched it 3 times in a week
This movie's cool, but what's up with the title change?
an interesting William Shakespeare adaptation, shot well, great score, and good performances from the cast ensemble.
Excellent Movie, the best of the New Wave of Martial Arts Films.
Stunning cinematography, martial arts & acting with a really good plot for a change. Lets hope the Dragon Dynasty version improves on the shoddy image quality of the Hong Kong release because this film deserves the full treatment. On the downside Dragon Dynastys new title is ridiculous & leaves me wondering what else they've changed. The Banquet is fantastic hopefully new title aside Dragon Dynastys Legend of the Black Scorpion will be too.....fingers crossed
i thought it was really good.
I loved the action in the movie and the fact that a women was taking over the empire instead of a man.
Excellent Movie. Loved it.
Excellent movie. In the line of "Grouching Tiger..., Hero, Fearless, House of Flying Daggers, and The Curse of the Golden Flower"...Watched it many times since I bought it, and still watch it too...Bought 2 copies, an Asian copy and this one. Although the Asian copy has a different title. Must have for Any Fan.
A Grounded Piece of Work
A very controlled piece of work. Much better than ZYM's Curse of the Golden Flower & the horrible Chen Kaige's The Promise. Seriously, the title change is BAD!! The Banquet is better.
Amazing picture that would have been even better if it was called The Banquet. Next up, The Legend of the Legendary Legend. Come on, guys, please keep the original titles, they'll sell.
Great adaptation of Hamlet! Beautiful! Better than Hamlet!
This is a wonderful film! It is better than Hamlet ever thought of being! Great cast! It was a very colorful movie, with a great musical score. It has plenty of action & betrayal to keep it very interesting. A must have film if you collect great Asian movies. This is right up there at the top with The Curse Of The Golden Flower! I loved every minute of it, and can't wait to view again with the commentary on.
all movies from DD are exelent nice work.. i have all dvds
By far one of the best. Excellent fight scenes.
I try to watch all the dragon dynasty films and this one is tops.
Excellent and well done!
It really keeps you entertained and thinking throughout the entire movie.Will watch it over and over because of the solid storyline.
love Ziyi - I am looking for the soundtrack and can not find one- How could I get the music details fom this show?
No words can explain, though I will attempt at it.
This is a brilliant adaptation of Hamlet and Willian Shakespeare. Simply incredible mold, into China's rich heritage. The Production Company could not have picked a better Cast! I am very moved by this, or other pictures of similarity, to this picture. Its time America appreciated what Chinese People have done for America, by appreciating the Chinese People and thier Arts for giving so much, please express my heart to the cast Xhang Xiyi, Daniel Wu(&crew) of this picture and H. Brothers as well. 4.5 is too low, but it will not let me click higher.
i love evrytghing about the movie especially that fact that everyone had their own story or plot or eevn part and they played it veryw ell
One of THE best movies I've ever seen!
I've seen it twice at my brother-in-law's house and now I want it for myself. The story and action keeps your attention from start to finish....
An all-around excellent film; beautifully shot, well-cast; the costumes and set design were stellar. Most importantly, the story is not just a Hamlet clone; this has a life of its own.
VERY TIGHT! TRULY GRATE!
I AM A MARTIAL ARTIS ,LOVE CLASSIC AND TRADITIONAL ARTS,I REALLY LOVED THIS MOVIE!!!
THIS MOVIE WAS OUTSTANDING AND I LOVE ZHANG ZIYI A TRUE GONGZHU
I think the film and presentaiton was excellent.
I enjoy this movie from the begining until the end. I really enjoyed how dance was intergraded with the style of martial art and passion. I've never viewed a movie with such unanticipated thrills. I would recommend this movie to anyone with great pleasure
The colors, the fight scenes, the turmoil within the characters ... all very well put together. Just hope this comes out on Blu-ray with all the uncut scenes.
una de las mejores q he visto
