It would have been less of a yawn to watch more fully-developed characters and plotting. More substance and less midair kicks.
Throw-everything-at-your-face old school wuxia crazyness. The credits say it was written by just one person, but you can tell there was probably a dozen of hands writting everything from stand alone scenes to one or two dialogues. What truly gives the movie it's juice is the characters and their interactions. A love triangle between Yeoh, Tony and Donnie, plus a good supporting cast and of course, Ching Siu-Tung pulling some wild over the top fight sequences. Nothing stands against the flying arrow bitch!
In these post Hero and House Of Flying Daggers (which actually has some ideas and sequences in common with this) times we have come to expect rather more from martial arts stories. The action is non-stop and impressively staged, and it has all the same ingredients; balletic fight scenes, flowing fabric and themes of love and honour. Unfortunately it suffers tremendously as far as production value and cinematography are concerned, as it all looks rather crude and artless in comparison. Michelle Yeoh and Tony Leung Chiu-wai are always watchable and hardcore martial arts fans will enjoy the breathless (and constant!) action, but it offers precious little else.
