This movie is a really good Chinese costume drama. Almost every thing about it is superb: the story itself, the plot twists, the characters, the acting, the style, the stage direction, the effects, the drama... But what strikes the most about it is how easily the most fantastic scenes can change into the most truthful realism in a matter of mere seconds; how fantasy and realism are interweaved to make the most stunning depiction of the battle.
The movie is just a masterpiece, if only being a bit too slow and contemplative for the Western viewer. But it is definitely worth seeing!
