This is one of the most beautiful movies I have ever seen. And I mean visually stunning. Each frame is like a picture. The colors are well balanced and vibrant. Liberties are taken with historical accuracy, in order to present this atmosphere that blends fantasy and realistic history. It features wonderfully performed music that fits its "fantastical history" feel. The story line is melodramatic, but I think that would appeal to us drama addicts :)

Yun-Fat Chow does an amazing job of inviting you in to his character while keeping a cool and aloof distance. Li Gong does well as the Empress, but the rest of the cast is unmemorable.

In a nutshell: Visually appealing if you like bright, ornate visuals, but may be too flashy for some. The story is melodramatic which can sometimes be boring.

This movie is well loved by me and my family. Because this movie is filled with action and suspense. The movie has an awesome chain of events that lead to an equally awesome ending. Well in reality the ending is controversial to me because I loved it but I also thought of a different one that could have been equally as awesome maybe even a little better. Not many people watch this movie maybe because it may not sound like much but if you see it I guarantee you will love it and watch it again and again.
