It's a Chinese movie, but I thought the plot a bit Shakespearian. Anyone else seen it?

How about telling us what it's about, or what you think about it, and not just saying it's name...

Planning on seeing it. Gong Li (or Li Gong depending on which culture says her name) is absolutely lovely and I'm amazed to finally hear of a movie from the region that's coming to the States and isn't starring Ziyi Zhang (who despite being Chinese is in EVERYTHING, including Korea's big Musa the Warrior).

Sure, she was really only a minor part in Hero she was still who the American put on the posters and DVD covers for the movie's release with Tarantino's name on it.

But back to the subject. I'd heard a lot of mixed reviews, but mostly great ones. I'm sure I'll love it, though.

EDIT: I should note that the Ziyi Zhang cracks were all purposely exaggerated. Of course, she isn't in EVERYTHING, but she does tend to star in many things. Not Stephen Chow's films it seems.

I didn't want to ruin the story for those who haven't seen it. I also thought the movie didn't run around the plot, but on character development, which I thought was very well done.

I thought it was terrible. It was a complete and utter rippoff of Shakespear, and I can't stand any movies that do that.

(Before you go listing off a million movies that did, that you think that were good, I'd like to point out that I hated "10 Things I hate about you," "West Side Story," and most everything else you'll name, I either hated and didn't feel like listing it, or I haven't seen...)

This sounds somewhat like Shinobi Heart Under Blade.

I still need to see it. It looks like a solid film. Seems almost like Dysnasty Warrior in the movies.
My friend calls it Curse of the Golden Shower. Just thought I'd throw that out there.
