House of Flying Daggers

Not Japanese and not manga, but I just finished watching it and was blown away by how incredibly good it was. Has anyone else seen it?

Sure, it's gorgeous, but I couldn't feel for the characters at all, the love story was ridiculous, and the plot just dragged on, and on, and on... Not Zhang Yimou's greatest moment. I felt he was too in love with the whole look of the film, and didn't pay attention to the important parts, like a good story. It's been done, and done better, by other films.

I liked the movie very much, I got the DVD when it came out...

The fight scenes were nicely done, and the story was good yet it still seemed like a shortened version of a larger story...

Yeah, I would've liked to see how the battle between the general's army and the house of flying daggers went at the end, but I think the last fight represented what happened in a way,

Thats why it was so great! I feel they were fighting about who loved the girl more. And neither were going to stop or give up! I agree this wasnt the greatest movie ever but its still a good movie.

Well, they also throw daggers that fly around like guided missiles, so by that point, anything was possible.

Also, a true samurai warrior, even with his head cut off, can perform one final action. Don't ask me how, they just can.
