An Empress and the Warriors

Friday, June 19, 2009

Ching Siu-tung (action director of HERO and HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS) turns in a Cantopop confection of warring armies, secret treehouses, Kelly Chen getting hit in the head, and Donnie Yen stripping off his shirt and screaming, “Who wants some of me?” It’s a campy, over-the-top Chinese martial arts epic, that’s cracked in all the best ways.
