| Indescribable beauty
Pei Pei Cheng has an indescribable beauty in this film, which is fitting, because the film itself is one of indescribable beauty.

It's set a martial arts films, but engages in sword and sorcery more, in old fashioned de Mille beauty and landscape.

There are some of the usual impossible acrobatics which are common to too many martial arts films, but not enough to detract from the beauty of the film and story. Just enough for a nice balance, without boring us with silly acrobatics every second.

Even on a small screen, the scenery is vivid and stunning. In a cinema, it is absolute splendor and power.

The story involves a stolen sword of power, but more than that, it involves a broken family, betrayal, forgiveness, love, great emotions, and great theatrics. The drama could just as well play out on a stage, with mesmerizing amazement on the script and acting alone. With the added beauty of the color and costumes, and of a perfect Pei Pei, it is pure Paradise. Pei Pei dazzles us with beauty in appearance and movement, and the camera work is amazing. On the other hand, no woman in the world should ever have to live up to the perfection of Pei Pei. We have found the perfect female beauty.

This is what a martial arts film should be. This is the pinnacle.
