Reign of Assassins

Reign of Assassins, the first chinese ancient movie by John Woo, though he’s just a co-producer and co-director. Featuring the pride of Malaysia – Michelle Yeoh as the main actress. It’s a mandarin speaking movie if u want to know, not sure about other place or other cinemas. I would just want to say this movie is a recommended movie to watch.

In this movie, Michelle Yeoh proves that not only she able to fight, but also able to act and seriously her acting skill were getting a lot a lot better and that’s why i said she’s really a pride of Malaysia

Minor Spoiler ahead

As usual for many movies, whereby the starting of the movie is quite confusing and is really happening to fast. Some may find it really hard to digest everything the movie is trying to feed u, but it’s ok though because eventually u will be able to link back when u watch on…

Fighting scene, it’s a must in these kind of movie genre, though there’s quite a lot of camera trick but thanks to martial art choreographer, the movement of the fighting scenes were great, i particularly like the fight between the monk and the old drizzle, especially their movements. Michelle Yeoh herself as u guys should know she’s a woman who knows martial arts and pretty much like Samuel Hung and Yuan Biao they all, she started off from just a small character in a movie or even just a substitute. She actually acted in quite a number of movies particularly in action movie, but not many people do remember her until when she acted in James Bond movie, which then i presume only many people started to recognize her. However, my point is eventhough Michelle Yeoh is not young, but clearly she’s still able to perform almost everything her nicely! Thumbs up for her 🙂

Story was quite entertaining, and of course there is always the “moral of the story”, as been a must of every big movies nowadays should have, which is about forgiveness is i am not wrong. Oh, and there’s actually one part where by the assassins went to Drizzle’s house wanting to kill her while she’s at badly wound, and where only the husband who’s there to protect her, this is a part which i quite like, though it’s a bit harsh and seems a bit forcefully to have to story appear to be like that, but still…is a scene which i quite like and i believe it will be others as well 😛 How is the scene? watch for yourself!

For this movie, i strongly recommend to watch and a movie worth to rewatch. I give the rating of 9/10
