During the reign of the Tang dynasty in China, a secret organization called "The House of the Flying Daggers" rises and opposes the government. Leo is a police officer who sends officer Jin to investigate a young dancer named Mei, claiming that she has ties to the "Flying Daggers" organization. Leo ends up arresting Mei, only to have Jin break her free in a plot to gain her trust and lead the police to the new leader of the secret organization. But things are far more complicated than they seem.

Typical Chinese action film but with a bit of a plot and story. Really a fun film to watch.

This dvd requires region-free dvd player. My player said, "Playback prohibited by area limitations." and could not load the dvd.

Real poetry in motion, like dancing in thin air. Feast for the eyes, a great movie.

Terrific film. Decent acting, decent script. Where it shines is the beautiful visual imageries, direction, and editing.
