A spectacular tale of betrayal and revenge featuring some of the most stunning martial arts fighting ever seen on film.
Based upon an age old legend, The Assassin's Blade tells the story of a girl, Yan Gi who disguised as a boy, enters the country's greatest all-male martial arts academy. Struggling with the physical strength of her male counterparts Yan Gi finds an ally in the school's top student, Chan Shan, who discovers and tutors her to become one of the most lethal assassins in the academy.
The pair eventually fall in love but the girl is betrothed to a childhood friend Ma, who embarks on a violent plan of blackmail to ensure that she becomes his wife. When Ma's treachery is revealed, Chun Shan has no choice but to use all that he's learned from the academy to exact justice

This is a Chinese take on Romeo and Juliet. It is not a fight fest for martial arts lovers. I found myself hoping that there would be a happy ending but it stays true to Shakepeares story. Truly moving and tear jerking ending.

you know the saying " it does what it says on the tin " well not this time. Not only can she handle the sword their is little martial arts training. This is a "chick flick" in disguise. The only assassin is the childhood sweetheart and he only did that once throughout the movie

unfortunately i think something got lost in translation on this film. the write up really does need redoing. essentially this a chinese take on 'Romeo & Juliet'. there is little martial arts. its a pure love story of a girl sent into hiding in a martial arts academy, who falls in love with the senior student (Chan Shan). unfortunately her childhood friend (Ma) is desperately in love with her and uses his politcal connections to force her into marriage. shes hatchs a plan to fake her own death, but her co-conspirator is killed before passing on their plans. when she 'dies' on her wedding day, Chan Shan decides to take her to their favorite place to bury her. this is where most of the action is... the rest is fairly easy to guess.

The Assassin's Blade

This was a really good film. Lots of twists and turns throughout the film, and plenty of action. Only, one thing which stops it from getting a 5stars and that it takes a little while to get going but to be honest its worth the wait. Enjoy.
