[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.

Sweeping, gorgeous, and head-scratchingly inaccessible, The Assassin is a challenging watch that asks much of its audience. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- At the end of the day, The Assassin represents a work of art rather than a martial arts film, which predominately relies on its beauty to dazzle its audience. Full Review

The pictorial beauty of this scene is self-evident; it's in Hou's painstaking orchestration of each component part and the thematic weight imparted by their careful configuration that lends the film a steadily increasing romantic gravitas. Full Review

THE ASSASSIN is a stately action movie, graceful and slow-moving, with bursts of smoothly choreographed violence.

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.
