YesAsia Editorial Description

This two-disc limited edition features a Cantonese dub by Andy Lau himself, as well as many bonus feaurettes including interviews, behind-the-scene footage, Cannes premiere footage, storyboard, location footage, theme song music video, and a behind-the-scene look at Andy Lau's recording session.

House of Flying Daggers is the latest martial arts epic from acclaimed director Zhang Yimou who stunned the world with Hero. How does love exist in a world where no one can be trusted and ambush is coming from all sides?

Towards the end of the Tang dynasty, the Emperor's rule is waning and corruption is rife, and many groups are formed in society to challenge the authorities. Out of all the groups, the most powerful is House of Flying Daggers. The government decides to send Feng Tian County's top captains Leo (Andy Lau) and Jin (Takeshi Kaneshiro) to capture the new leader within 10 days. Leo suspects that Mei (Zhang Ziyi), the beautiful new dancer at Peony Pavillion, is the daughter of the old leader. He decides to send Jin disguised as a warrior called Wind to rescue Mei, and to ensnare her trust so she'll lead them to the secret headquarters of the House of Flying Daggers. But as Jin and Mei spend more time together, they begin to develop feelings for each other. However, danger is lurking from all corners. Can Jin and Mei really love each other when there are secrets being hidden from both sides?

House of Flying Daggers has been received with both critical and commercial success in Asia. Andy Lau, Takeshi Kaneshiro, Zhang Ziyi and give stunning performances as people torn apart by love and betrayal. The action choreography is staged by Ching Siu Tung who also worked on Hero.

  唐大中大三年,皇帝昏庸,朝廷腐敗,民間湧現不少反官府的組織,其中飛刀門以「殺富濟貧、推翻朝廷」為旗號,甚得百姓擁戴。朝廷深以為患,逐令飛刀門總部所在的捧天縣縣衙於十日內,將飛刀門幫主緝拿歸案。兩大捕頭與金捕頭急謀對策;劉捕頭懷疑新店牡丹坊的舞妓小妹是前幫主的女兒,逐用計將她拿下,押入天牢。二人並再度設下圈套︰由金捕頭化名隨風大俠,乘夜劫獄,救出小妹;藉此騙取小妹的信任,查出飛刀門的巢穴。

  逃亡路上,兩人漸生情愫。然而,隱隱殺機正悄悄地向他們逼近…

  859AD, the incompetent Emperor and corrupted government decline the Tang Dynasty.

Feng Tian County's two local captains, Leo and Jin are ordered to capture the House leader within ten days. Captain Leo suspects that Mei, the beautiful new dancer at the Peony Pavilion is actually the daughter of the former leader, and hatches a plan to arrest her and bring her in for questioning. At the same time, Captain Jin will pretend to be a lone warrior, Wind, rescue Mei from prison, earning her trust and escorting her to the secret headquarters of the House of Flying Daggers. The plan works but on their long journey to the House, something unexpected and uncontrollable is forming.

Martial arts grandeur meets visual supremacy
Zhang Yimou's House of Flying Daggers turned into a sort of belated discovery for me. Turned away by the fact that the follow-up to the epic Hero would lack Maggie Cheung, Tony Leung Chiu Wai, and Jet Li, I decided to skip this movie, a mistake I would later regret. When I finally saw House of Flying Daggers, I was in for a most pleasant surprise, discovering that Zhang Yimou's balanced combination of movie art and martial arts once again delivers on many levels.


To put it bluntly, I found myself unable to leave my seat once the action in the story, loosely revolving around a rebellious minority clan and their ordeal with the reigning Tang regime, went full throttle. From the beginning, I was drawn in by the film's fabulous cinematography, the attractive costumes, and the perfectly choreographed fighting scenes. My favorite scene in the movie has to be the one featuring an unbelievable ambush in a bamboo grove, with the actors' movements, the visual effects, and the music score blending into perfect unity. The flying bamboo staffs shot in beautiful unison combined with stunning martial arts galore and razor-sharp sound effects left me amazed and entirely absorbed, as if I was appreciating a fine piece of art.


Equally stunning is the showdown involving the story's three main characters, presented in a way that probably couldn't be more over the top. This seemingly endless final battle for love and victory stands out with spellbinding shots of the changing seasons captured in the background. Obviously defying human logic, the scene allows exceptional martial arts choreography and beautifully shot landscapes to intermingle in perfect harmony and form a synchronized whole.


In conclusion, I can't praise Zhang Yimou's House of Flying Daggers enough. It is loaded with spectacular martial arts sequences and imagery that can be compared with unique colorful paintings. I was left totally breathless by this visual epic and wholeheartedly recommend you to experience it on an extra large screen.

Visual Feast Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
I've seen this movie years ago and decided to give a review now.

As many reviewers have mentioned before me., this movie is visual feast for those looking for Zhang Yimou's trademark of capturing outdoor scenery like a colour palette. Many outdoor locations were stunning and in particular the scene where Takeshi & ZZY were pursued by the guards in the bamboo forest and the open fields where they bade farewell. The precise landing of those bamboo shafts combined with sound effects keeps you on the edge and have become one of the trademark scene in many a tongue-in-cheek situations.

I was surprised with the choice of Andy Lau in this movie cause he doesn't really speak mandarin that well. A good performance from Takeshi and ZZYi showed her fluidity of motion & dance in the opening sequence. She came across as the ice maiden here partially because her character calls for it. Halfway through the movie one can already assume the ending, i.e. with no one gaining anything in a love triangle situation where jealousy & the feeling of betrayal by a loved one is more than enough to create a green-eyed monster. Only shortcoming, which I find has become a habit of some of Hong Kong & Mainland best directors, is to throw in a few minutes of sexual romp in a bid to stir the audience. I think they've forgotten that in period dramas, subtlety is best and in this case, it was awkward. Should have been done differently.

Still, it's one of those new=age creations to come out of Asia capturing a whole new generation of western audience.

Strangely Intriguing O.o Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
This movie seemed all-over-the-place to me, but yet I enjoyed it regardless. Some of the acting was pretty bad in parts but the visuals were beautiful and interesting. Once I started watching it, for some reason, I was drawn into the complicated storyline and characters. Zhang Ziyi is a very simple and plain-looking girl but is a pretty good actress some of the time. The ending is beautiful but sad in its way. While I do find this movie often forgettable compared to better Chinese action/romances, it didn't give me that "i can't believe i wasted 2 hours of my life on this!" feeling. I thought the sexual parts brought down the quality of the movie not to mention they were kind of funny and odd!! O.o Anyyyyyyyyywaaay! It's a fair movie, but nothing I'd watch more than 2 times or recommend to someone looking for a good Asian film. O.O nuh-uh.

Visual Poetry Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This is my favourite film in the world. Yes, ive read that some people think the story is weak, that the ending is melodramatic etc, etc. I couldnt care less. This film will fill up your senses with its beautiful use of colour (the costumes, sets and out-door scenery is the best my eyes have ever experienced on film), music (the soundtrack is superb) and the particularly spectacular action scenes. This film to me is visual poetry...I went through every emotion possible with this drama and have watched it time and time again and still feel the same about it. Yi Mou Zhang is a genius as far as I am concerned. I cannot wait for his next offering. The lead actors are gorgeous and credible and if film is there to make you really FEEL, feel I most certainly did.

so so Customer Review Rated Bad 5 - 5 out of 10
The movie was visual and gorgeous...but the story line was awful. It was far too predictable, you could tell what was going to happen, and who was going to kill who. I also felt that falling in love in three days is laughably fake. It took a lot away from the believeability of the film, and added a callow, childish element to it. I did like the scenes and outfits of the movie too, though. The movie could have been much better. Also, the kissing scenes were pretty bad. It looks like it was agonizing for them to kiss each other! If its that bad, dont do it!
