  1. Billy Casper's World's rating of the film The Assassin

    For me this is Cheh Chang's masterpiece. Everything from the doom-laden music, the colours and the sword fighting I found to be mesmerising, it's Cheh Chang's strongest film story wise too. Riveting and beautiful from start to finish.

  2. Endre's rating of the film The Assassin

    Wuxia theorist Stephen Teo described this film's "apocalyptic mood"; the music and sounds are maniacal and menacing, darkly glorious, making the film seeming permanently on the treshold of this and the other side of life. Fascinating and at times riveting cinema, and/but almost perverse in its obsession and fundamentalism.

  3. Erdiawan's rating of the film The Assassin

    One of Chang Cheh's best films!
