    I've read somewhere that this is the most expensive chinese film of all time...and it shows.

    The costumes, scenery, the colors, the backdrops of the emperor's palace where 90% of the story takes place are breathtaking and can make the film worthwile alone.

    The story itself is a shakespearean drama which for western audiences might be harder to grasp and appreciate than that of Zhang Yimou's previous "Hero" (me included)

    Still, an interesting watch
