The lead actress, Ziyi Zhang, was so great. She's a lead in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon too and I'm getting really fan of her.
The plot is very nice too. In a way it's stereotype but still it's not boring at all. It's a perfect mix of fighting, love, drama and tradition.
I especially liked the ending. And I DO NOT bother if she dies for hours. And I DO NOT giggle because of that. I know it's not very likely to happen like this but this IS A MOVIE and not real life. Otherwise I wouldn't go to the movies, would I? But those people who were giggling and saying "well that's a bit exaggerated" when she got up again to throw the dagger are so dumb *stabs them*.
The only thing I missed a bit was the flights. In Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon the characters fly a lot during the fight scenes and when they 'walk' over the water and I liked that so much. But the fight in the bamboo forest evens it all out, it's brilliant.
So if you like Chinese films, this one is a must-be withour giggling.
