    One of the most visually stunning films I have ever seen, almost too much deliciousness to bear. Wonderful fight sequences too, but watch for those two factors, nothing else. 9 years 1 month ago

    Luscious scenery and visuals. The fight scenes seemed overly staged to me but still nice to watch. The love triangle made for an interesting ending. Watch it for the in-air fight scene and poetic beauty, if nothing else. 7 years 8 months ago

    Very pleasant to watch.
    As usual with wuxia movies, you don't want to be too picky with the realism of the story being told. It's the kind of movies where the characters arrive to a place by foot and leave this place on horses.
