Must See Movie Rental!
I don't typically write about movies, but this one is a must see. "House of Flying Daggers" is the most visually extravagent film I have seen in ages. Ziyi Zhang (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) is stunning and superb. Her portrayal of Mei, a blind dancer associated with a dangerous rebel force, is exquisite. Male stars Takeshi Kaneshiro and Andy Lau bring depth and complexity to well written characters. If you like martial arts, these meticulously coreographed fight scenes are top notch. Amazing cinematography and a well executed plot come together to make House of Flying Daggers one of my all time favorites.
