Format: DVD
After reading a few rave reviews, I purchased this DVD and found it somewhat lacking. To its credit, there are some scenes that are quite beautiful; the combination of cinematography and acting combine to create beautiful moments. My favorite portion of the movie is about Yin/Yang. I think her fighting her schizophrenic reflection in the water is awesome (though the watery explosions just felt mega-cheesy). Beyond this, however, the story IS quite difficult to follow, and I found myself constantly asking "Ok, is this the other guy or someone new...?" I might find it more appealing after multiple viewings, as the story line might coalesce for me. I would proabably have gotten more out of the movie if I understood the stories from which it was derived; it's like watching the 2nd half of a movie. Now on the major downside, the transfer was clearly shaky - regardless of how good or bad translations are, they aren't always fully viewable on the screen. The fight scenes are sparse (which is ok), but most are filmed in "BlurryVision" - meaning most of the movement on the screen is nothing but whirling blurs with very cheesy-sounding effects. Were it a campy martial arts flick, I wouldn't mind, but when combined with the dramatic intensity of other scenes, it just feels completely misaligned, like I'm watching two different genres of movies that were spliced together. If you appreciated the precision and grace of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, with elegant choreography and nice wirework, don't expect to see any of that in Ashes of Time... just lots of blurs and maybe some blood. To some, the fights might seem er... artsy, but to me, they just look sloppy. Were this movie filled with more captivating dramaic scenes and without the blurry fights, I'd have liked it a lot more.

This was an incredible film. Perhaps I'm biased simply because I AM Chinese; then again, everyone has to admit the plot was complex and well thought out. I have heard that some people did not understand the movie entirely and it is somewhat hard to comprehend. I was able to grasp the movie's meaning from the beginning only because I grew up hearing stories of Dong Shie and Ouyang Feng, characters by the popular author Jing Yong. Many people, not knowing the original story, do not realize that the movie tied together loose ends left by the author (such as why Ouyang and Hong hated each other from the start.) When I watched it, a sort of epiphany came over me. It was kind of like, "Ohhh!!! That's why he named the island Peach Blossoms!" Maggie Cheung was also wonderful in the movie--she appears in the last part of the film and the focus is only on her for a few minutes. However with only a few simple gestures and a red dress, she absolutely steals the spotlight.

When I first watched the movie, I was left wondering what the film was about. I didn't get it at all and only liked the music but my best friend kept telling me how much he preferred Ashes of Time to Fallen Angels and Chungking Express, all by the same director so I watched it again. And again, and again! The planets must have all been aligned that one night on my last viewing because I finally saw through the intricate, delicate plot and for a moment, I felt the rush of realization and it was intensely wonderful.

Seriously: the sound is the worst I have encountered on any DVD release, a big part of the screen is covered with a dark grey box to cover the original subtitles - there is a lot of video jittery things going on, it all adds up to my conclusion that the DVD version is transfered from a very, very bad analog copy. On top of all, the subtitles are totally out of sync and awfully misspelled. Dont buy this unless you are a fanatic WKW fan who already own all other releases......

Everything is exactly as mentioned in the other reviews. I haven't seen the regular version of this movie, but I don't care to because I enjoy this version. The storyline involving the girl who disguises herself as a guy gets a little confusing, and thus weird, but it really isn't key to the greater story. This isn't an action movie, it is more reflective. Something to watch every once in a blue moon.

This is not the usual hong kong movie that Im use to seeing Its very different with little fight scene. So dont expect crazy fight scene but looking just at the cover of the movie and the name does sound like its going to be like a fighting movie. So Im glad I rented this first so I wasnt stuck buying the movie.
