House of Flying Daggers
I was first introduced to the genre of martial arts film by Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon in 2001. It interests me visually, but I was not impressed with the story. Then, I saw Hero. The creative story and visual was incredible, one of my favorite films from last year. House of Flying Daggers follows in those footsteps, but fails to fill the shoes. The visual is great,but the story is boring. I was most interested in knowing that the last scene was filmed in the snow , because the weather was such on location. Unfortunately, the scene dragged so badly, I was grateful for the credits. Pretty film, but no story.
