Rating: 1/5 -- May just be the most tedious and enervating kung-fu movie ever conceived. Full Review

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

Rating: 4/4 -- Shot in both vivid color and striking black and white, the film unfolds like a poem, a whispered plea for peace and a stoic reflection on human folly. Full Review

The Assassin packs nearly every kind of arty, intersectional-feminist fan's fantasy into one movie. Full Review

[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.
