I've just bought the double DVD of The House of Flying Daggers. Directed by Zhang Yimou, who also directed Raise the Red Lantern, The House of Flying Daggers is a beautifully shot film with stunning scenery, fight scenes that are pure artistry, and a story that will break your heart for it's shocking twist. Has anyone else here seen it?

Isn't Zhang Ziyi amazing? So much talent for such a young actress. I especially loved the scene with the drum beats. :eek:

I suggest you watch "Hero." The cinematogrophy is excellent, surpassing that of "House of Flying Daggers."

Yeah Olvid, the Echo game is a great scene, and the Peony pavilion is beautiful. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif 'Hero' is on my list too.

Nicky:
So you buy DVDs at 2.39 in the morning?:D http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif Of course not. I'd bought it the day before, watched it, and then just watched the bonus material. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-2.gif

Thanks amlai. So many pictures there! I have CTHD too.

I have seen it too, no doubt it's a good movie. Fight scenes were excellent, story and performance great. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif I knew it even in the beginning that she wasn't blind :D

Yes, Apofiss. I also knew that she wasn't blind it just was too obvious. There was something wrong and I realised that she wasn't blind.

I've 'just' watched it :eek: . Very beautiful photography and artistic flair. My only nitpick was, at the end, a sort of unfinished feeling. Apart from that, great! Thought the colour palette(s) and scenery were gorgeous (though there must be a name for being overwhelmed in green bamboo!! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif )

Cool pics! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif I would reccomend Hero to everyone. It just has everything - action, adventure, special effects, fighting scenes, romance etc. It's one of the best movies made.

Looks wonderful Olvid. I nearly bought it yesterday, in a special offer. Unfortunately, I couldn't find another two DVD's I wanted (yeah, I'm not paying full price :D ). So I'll wait.

I can see by the pics that I'm gonna love it. Thanks for those. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif
