Entertainment Reviews:

A.V. Club - 10/15/2015
"Enigmatic and often mesmerizing, super-saturated with color, drawn like a still plain ripped by brief, unexpected gusts of wind -- THE ASSASSIN is one of the most flat-out beautiful movies of the last decade, and also one of the most puzzling." -- Grade: A-
Los Angeles Times - 10/15/2015
"Combining Hou's patient, observant style with a historical martial arts tale, the film is a fascinating hybrid of craft, genre and story."
RogerEbert.com - 10/16/2015
"Hou and cinematographer Mark Lee Ping Bing have come up with the most stylistically fascinating and visually striking work of their numerous collaborations..."
New York Times - 10/16/2015
"THE ASSASSIN is a stately action movie, graceful and slow-moving, with bursts of smoothly choreographed violence."
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/29/2015
"[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."

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.
