Love it or leave it

House of flying daggers. Zhang Yimou. I know you are supposed to like this movie a lot. All the movie elements are excellent. The colors are exceptional and the fighting scenes too. But you have to like this genre called Wuxia, a.k.a. movies about martial arts in its broadest aspect. I like them, but I don’t love them per definition. They need to work for my appreciation. This movie did its best for it and I appreciated it but it was close to the edge of dislike since it is just a complicated lovestory with visual overkill. I prefer my wuxia with pure revenge. Watch this movie and respect it for the quality it is. Adore the movie if you are a wuxia lover. (2004)
