"Prepare your eyes for popping," in this "martial-arts fireball that throws in a lyrical love story, headspinning fights and dazzling surprises" (Rolling Stone). "A gorgeous entertainment" (A.O. Scott, New York Times). Mei is an exotic, beautiful blind dancer, associated with a dangerous revolutionary gang, known as the House of Flying Daggers. Captured by officers of the decadent Tang Dynasty, Mei finds herself both threatened - and attracted - to the most unusual circumstances. Here, her heart and loyalties battle each other, amid warriors in the treetops and dazzling combat - the likes of which have never before been seen!

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Zhang ... mixes old-school inventiveness with cutting-edge special effects.
Fresh: It's the ravishment of romance, adventure, nobility, betrayal, all those big, primary-colored old-fashioned movie emotions.
Fresh: A dazzler -- and almost as exciting as its title promises.
Fresh: About as viscerally and visually exciting as film can get, and yet it is also fully, ripely romantic in a way that few modern films would dare.
Just a note
Just a note to potential buyers: This movie is subbed so if you dont like reading subtitles while watching, you might not enjoy it as much. But it's still a great movie, and I suggest you watch it subbed or not.
