Swords aren't the only things flying in Tsui Hark's splendidly absurd wuxia - the first Chinese martial-arts film in 3D.

The 3D is terrific in Flying Swords of Dragon Gate, but helmer Tsui Hark's costume actioner -- the first Chinese-lingo movie shown in the stereoscopic Imax format -- is let down by two-dimensional characters.

A disappointing martial arts fable with Jet Li spinning and leaping to avoid the swords of powerful Eunuchs and nasty treasure hunters at the famous Dragon Gate Inn
