In the year 198 BC, Cao Cao (Chow Yun Fat), The Prime Minister of Han Dynasty, ventured to the east and savagely defeated China's greatest warrior Lv Bu, terrifying every warlord across the country before crowning himself the King of Wei. Meanwhile, young lovers Mu Shun (Tamaki Hiroshi) and Ling Jv (Crystal Liu Yi Fei) were taken from a prison camp to a hidden tomb where they spent five cruel years being trained as assassins for a secret mission.
Over twenty years later, in the year 220 BC, astronomical signs began to predict dramatic change and as a result, Cao's son Cao Pi (Qiu Xin Zhi) and his followers urged Cao to become the new Emperor, unaware that opposing forces were plotting against him...

Being a huge fan of Chow Yun Fat's work (especially the excellent Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) I couldn't wait to see him in action, and The Assassins certainly does not disappoint! Set in the distant past, The Assassins has a fantastic plot with plenty of tension, romance and, of course, action. The Assassins is easily one of the most stunning action films you'll ever seen. It's simply beautiful! The Blu-ray accentuates this brilliantly - the colours are vivid, the shots are gorgeous and the soundtrack acts as the icing on the cake. It's sheer eye-candy! I'd highly recommend this to all fans of action cinema (especially Asian films). It's a beautiful film with a fantastic action set piece, making it one of the best martial art movies I've seen in quite some time.
