The Assassin packs nearly every kind of arty, intersectional-feminist fan's fantasy into one movie. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- The director pays exhaustive attention to sound editing and mise-en-scène. Full Review
Hou and cinematographer Mark Lee Ping Bing have come up with the most stylistically fascinating and visually striking work of their numerous collaborations...
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
One Room With A View
Much like Wong with The Grandmaster, Hou has made a martial arts film that is more of a personal statement than a genre piece, but his style suits the genre surprisingly well and certainly makes its mark in martial arts cinema. Full Review
The Assassin" is a gorgeous film, artfully structured, that bares however, little semblance to the wuxia genre, apart from the era it takes place. Full Review
Asian Movie Pulse
[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.
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.
