House of Flying Daggers - January 2005

In Chinese with English subtitles

The latest in a wave of Chinese imports featuring great heroes, personal redemption and jaw-dropping visuals. "House of Flying Daggers" doesn’t have as strong a story as last year’s "Hero," but represents the genre well and has three lengthy scenes that will make you want to hit ‘Rewind.’

The title refers to an organization whose symbol is the dagger, not a domicile filled with daggers on the move. Not good to confuse the two.
