A chick flick action movie.

I found myself spacing out a few times. This movie isn't even trying to be good. It's a popcorn commercial style film starring movie stars. Way too much overblown music (almost all the time, making this an overgrown music video - almost universally a bad idea). There's also not much of a script here. But the sets look very nice.

If you watch with the sound off, you might be under the impression that it's an awesome movie. It's not. Everything is derivative of better films. But the young, especially chicks, will be into the movie, so I will be generous and give it a 3.5 out of 5.

Awesome action and a hugely impressive scale, set in feudal China with a variety of scenic locations. The story is weak but it manages to present itself in a way that you aren't let down by it; you were expecting it.

another love triangle pic

This movie has sumptuous production values and sets, but ultimately fails because most of the characters aren't developed well. There's a cheesy love triangle, and a poor villain who doesn't have much menace. The movie soundtrack is good, and there is a great speech from Feier, but ultimately this movie needed more action and less lovey dovey shenanigans in the woods.

It was kind of boring and slow and appears to be a typical historical movie, but it got better and quite interesting. A very entertained movie.

"Jiang Sang Mei Ren",beauty chinese tittle,I liked it but it such a unfortune that the overall result of this film turns out in opposite way.Yes,they got the point,Love will cause you selfish and sacrifice for someone's sake but the setting is retarded.Shallow characters and Immature love tale,even some engaging sword-battles and signatue of Director Chin Siu Tung couldn't save it.

A C-grade film with A-grade budget, with the usual predictable plot cliches and inevitable lovesong/scene in the middle.

One of the hundreds Chinese films mainly about sword-fighting, but also about a young Princess Fei-Er accepting the reign over a great kingdom after the death of her father, during the film she learns how to use a sword and a bow, falls in love with a solitary monk, doctor and fighter, overtakes numerous enemies, reverts a coup and wins people's love. Some epic fighting scenes are expertly done, but with nothing else in the film, there isn't much to see.

The film has a terrible story and some uninteresting characters. I did like the cast and the some of the fight scenes are engaging.

Had potential, but quickly degenerates into a formulaic plot, and the usual unrealistic fight scenes. Ends being a C-grade fairy tale meets martial arts movie.

Pretty insipid love story from Hong Kong. Not helped by the schmaltzy soundtrack.

Good film. Need to see it again. Refreshingly non wire work and interesting story but not in the same calibre of Musa The Warrior.
½ November 20, 2011
Bland historical drama with a female lead mostly uncapable of showing the proper expression in every situation: leaving out the guest appearance of Saruman (?) evil indios chasers (?) and a Conan the Barbarian moment for Donnie Yen (?) a boring mess.

Nothing really new......it has good moments, like the start - but then some strange cuts and odd choices leave a very disappointing ending.

Cheesy. Only good thing about this is you get to see Donnie Yen in action.
