“this film is beautiful to look at. Scenery is great, the way the scenes are set up, the colours and the lighting are fantastic. Even the actors are beautiful to look at – Zhang Zhi Yi is at her sensual best.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe story did have some interesting twists but not too many which is why some on here are complaining itu0026#39;s not u0026#39;complexu0026#39; or u0026#39;layeredu0026#39; enough. But compared to a regular Hollywood film and this one is much better.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe acting is uneven. Daniel Wu had a tough time adding any depth to his morose character. I guess heu0026#39;s the Chinese version of Hayden Christenson. Zhang Zhi Yi really shines as does Zhou Xun. Ge You also plays the usurping emperor with passion and adds a bit of humanity to him – heu0026#39;s not just an evil bad guy to be hated.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e8/10”
