House of Flying Daggers

Zhang Yimou | 2004 | 119 min | Hong Kong + China

This one IS a standard martial arts flick, but one that takes advantage of the grand new budgets afforded post Crouching Tiger. There is fighting, falling in love, embarrassing dialogue, + more fighting. The fighting is really really good. The end.

I'm still impressed to see Yimou using sync sound.
