Set during China's Three Kingdoms era (AD 220–280). The story of a great king and his people, who will be expelled from their homeland and will aspire to claim it. The king, violent and ambitious, of mysterious methods and motives; his general, a visionary who yearns to win the final battle but needs to prepare his plans in secret; the women of the palace, who struggle to find redemption in a world where they have no place; and a commoner called "Lord of all the world," will be the characters around who turn the inexorable forces of this story.

Zhang Yimou directed an amazing movie once again. The actors did a wonderful job, the costumes were impressing, the story and the characters had a quite interesting devepment. The movie is full of yin and yang sympolisms which create a very special atmosphere. While most of the colours are missing the image is quite balanced and the performed music and martial arts have a different "colour" than what we're used to.
An excellent choice of a movie to watch at the cinema. Personally, I loved it, however I would suggest someone watch some other chinese movies before that, because I have the impression that they would not quite get the importance of the numerous symbolisms.

From Zhang Yimou I expected a gorgeously shot movie and this absolutely delivered.

Gorgeous art direction (surprising and fitting use of ONLY black, white and grey), beautiful camera work, excellent action sequences, terrific performances and morale ambiguity....all trademarks of his films. He’s an expert film maker and an expert movie maker. It’s exciting, suspenseful, surprising, heartbreaking and all the emotions.

It’s a smart and sophisticated popcorn movie for cinema buffs and for those looking for a fun movie, too.
