This is my first review so I'm kinda new at this.

If you're not a fan of historical martial arts films, then don't watch this. The story reminded me of "Hero" and "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon", two great Chinese movies starring Zhang Ziyi as well. Can't really tell much about it though, 'cause we don't want any spoilers, do we ... Just read the synopsis! + You'll get an idea of what else to expect by reading further :) (Story - 9)

I really liked the accuracy in lots of elements such as costumery, weapons (super awesome btw!), settings and that everybody speaks in their native language (Chinese and Korean). The Yuan-dynasty's soldiers are played by Mongolian actors, which makes it more believable. Zhang Ziyi's acting is great as always, although that might be my opinion 'cause I have a slight crush on her :3. Ahum, moving on, I really like how all these different cultures cross paths in this movie. It helps you visualize how these cultures looked like in the past. What really made this movie great for me were the hardcore battles in it (hint: man with spear)! (Acting/Cast - 9)

Not really much to tell about the music. It worked out well with the scenes, like the battles for example, and gave me a matching feeling. The music did what it had to do, and did good doing so. (Music - 8)

Just like the two great Chinese movies I mentioned above, this one's worth a rewatch. Though you might like to wait a while before doing so, 'cause it'll most likely stay fresh in your head for quite some time. Yet, totally worth it! (Rewatch - 8)

This is in my top 3 favorite movies of all time. I've watched it countless times and of course I will watch it again.
The plot is really rudimentary. A bunch of people is chasing another bunch of people for two and a half hours. But!
Three things that make those 2,5 h worth your time.
+ it's freaking beautiful. The fotografy is a piece of art. How to take dust, rags and ruins and make gorgeous pictures, that's the magic of cinema (yeah, Wong Kar-wai did it first in Ashes of Time, ok).
+ the action scenes. We get to see all sorts of battles, duels, skirmishes, many tactics, lots of blood (and arrows rhrough necks for some reason), and all of it is rather believable. No wire action here. The fighting is beautifully filmed (by someone that actually knows how to break the ''hold the camera steady when filming action'' rule) while managing to appear realistic.
+ all of this is nice but this movies great strength is the characters and the relationships between them. I don't want to make this review too long, so I'll just write that this movie have a great cast that brings to life every single character down to the last random merchant.
I can't recomment this movie enough.
