We gave it an A-

An outrageously gorgeous spectacle of balletic aggression. Director Zhang Yimou sends daggers ripping across the screen and unleashes human fists of fury, but he also weaves romantic passion into the fabric of the action. As an underground rebel, Ziyi Zhang has the amorous delicacy of a silent-movie star.
