House of Flying Daggers

Rating: 
8/10

This movie made it to America in the wake of Crouching Tiger and has much of the same stylishness. Doesn't quite pack the same wallop though. But it has its fair share of dramatic art direction and is awash in solid colors and exciting slow-mo fight sequences. The final fight in the snow is memorable and the story in generally is pretty chick-flickish for a Kung Fu film.
