It’s not one of [Zhang’s] very best, not on a par with “Hero” (Jet Li’s finest hour) or “House of Flying Daggers” even. But it still becomes a rousing, stately entry in the martial arts genre. Eventually.

A martial-arts movie landmark, as strong in its performances as it is spectacularly novel in its violence.
