It's the end of the flamboyant but decaying 1000-year-old feudal Tang dynasty and the Emperor (Chow Yun Fat) his Empress (Gong Li) and their sons are engaged in a Shakespearean downfall. The stunningly realised combat set pieces and sumptuous period design may not be enough for chop socky fans but the literary core makes it a rich emotional experience.
