Major disappointment
9 September 2019 | by RanblSee all my reviews

I am a huge fan of the director "hero" and "House of flying daggers" are masterpieces in my book. His characters are usually honorable and the scenes are nothing short of a visual spectacle. Shadow has distinct style but none of the flare and its characters are petty, power hungry and fight in the dark instead of showing off. Like a bad soap opera. Still compared to others it's above average but in his standards pitiful.
