It starts slow (but it is building up) and quickly escalates. Intense battle scenes with unexpected tactics.

Visually stunning and well acted, but the story seemed overly drawn out.

Beautifully choreographed with amazing visual effects but storyline could have been stronger.

Appears that Western critics*** universally laud Zhang Yimou's artistic period epic which also won Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards for best Director, Visual Effects, Art Direction and Makeup & Costume Design. However, I can understand why it failed to capture the other biggies as Best film (An Elephant Sitting Still,) Original Screenplay (Dying to Survive,) Adapted Screenplay (An Elephant Sitting Still.)

***
95% Rotten Tomatoes
7/10 IMDb
3.5/4 Roger Ebert

Note: The new weapon comes across as a tribute to the Hong Kong Umbrella Movement in 2014.

No place for women here. Qian, the male, origin of all things shall rule the world.

Without the real, there can be no "shadow." A principle no one's understood.
