[W]e are treated to majestic Chinese landscape paintings come to life -- impossibly lush landscapes, valleys and mountain peaks so gloriously captured by cinematographer Mark Lee Ping Bing, they almost defy description.

Rating: 2/5 -- The Assassin is undeniably one of the most beautiful-looking films to come out all year - however fans of interesting characters, cinematic thrills and coherent narratives should look elsewhere. Full Review

Product Description:

Set in 9th-century China during the Tang Dynasty, a general's daughter (Qi Shu) who had been abducted as a child and trained by a nun in the martial arts, returns to her birthplace after thirteen years to kill the governor (Chen Chang) to whom she was once slated to marry. But first, she must confront her parents and her long-simmering repressed feelings in her struggle to decide whether to kill her former love or betray her orders as a righteous assassin.
