House of Flying Daggers - Stylized Hong Kong Kung Fu Martial Arts Action DVDSKU: VO1182A
The film is set in 859 AD. The once great Tang Dynasty is now in decline. Numerous rebel groups have formed; the largest of which is the House of Flying Daggers; based in Feng Tian county. The Flying Daggers steal from the rich and give to the poor; gaining the support of the locals. The local deputies have managed to kill the leader of the Flying Daggers; but the rebel group only becomes stronger; due to a mysterious new leader. Jin (Takeshi Kaneshiro) and Leo (Andy Lau); two police captains; are ordered to kill the new leader within ten days. In order to accomplish this; they arrest Mei (Zhang Ziyi); a blind dancer who is suspected of being the daughter of the old leader of the Flying Daggers. While Mei is incarcerated; Jin and Leo decide to let her go to track the mastermind; Jin will pretend to be a lone warrior called Wind; and break her out of prison. This will gain her trust; and hopefully; Jin will be led to the headquarters of Flying Daggers. The plan works; but Mei and Jin fall in love on the way. They are followed at a distance by Leo; Jin and Leo meet secretly to discuss their plans. Jin jokes about his seduction of the girl; Leo warns him sternly against getting involved. To add authenticity to the deception; Leo and his men ambush the pair: the fight is; however; a fake. Further on; they are attacked again; but this time their assailants are apparently for real: Jin and Mei battle for their lives; being saved only by the intervention of an unseen knife-thrower. Furious; Jin confronts Leo: Leo explains that he has reported the matter up the chain of command and his general has taken over the pursuit. Jin realizes that he is now expendable. 119 min.
