A dramatic story very artfully told. Excellent actors. Chen Kaige did not disappoint. Action and dramatic scenes were very well balanced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very dramatic July 29, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Very nicely made movie, extremely dramatic with not so much martial action though. It is also quite long, more than 2 hours, but given a twisted plot and dialogues, you can hardly notice the time. Overall it is a sad story, which at the end feels somewhat unfinished. Reminds me a bit Curse Of The Golden Flower

Format:DVD
Based on the classic play ("Orphan of Zhao"), SACRIFICE is written and directed by Chen Kaige of FAREWELL MY CONCUBINE fame. It's the story of duplicitous dealings to seize power during the Yuan Dynasty in the 5th century B.C. When the Zhao clan is wiped out by Tu'an Gu (played by Wang Xue Ki), a common doctor named Cheng Ying (Ge You) rises up to take the family's last survivor - an infant prince - into his possession. However, Tu'an Gu refuses to be anyone fools, and he orders all newborns to be taken under to the palace until the baby prince is surrendered. A tragic twist of fate leaves Cheng without his wife and his own son, but he raises the prince as his own. When the boy comes of age, will he rise up and take back the reign of leadership, or will he instead bow down to Tu'an, who he now looks upon as his own godfather?

While a terrific film, SACRIFICE is not without a few creative hiccups. In fact, I found the opening fifteen minutes of the film more than a bit confusing, as - for reasons I couldn't figure - writer/director Chen employed a very choppy narrative with which to set all these players in motion. There's a bit of confusion as several sequences play out-of-order in proper chronology. On the face of it, it appears as if it was entirely a stylistic consideration, though I'm not convinced it was the wisest decision. However, once these relationships are fully established, the film (thankfully) drops into a more conventional pace - Cheng is seen raising the prince through several years - and the story makes perfect sense.

Much of the story is the stuff solid `classics' are drawn from. There's the traditional pomp and circumstance of dealing with royal clans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Are these tears!?! April 21, 2013
By Noel V.
Format:DVD
I watched this movie and will buy it here. I have to say, this is one of the saddest revenge movies I've ever seen. It would be impossible to believe that a 15 year old boy could fight a seasoned warlord if you had just started watching the movie from that point. Maybe it's because I'm not used to seeing a baby being killed that this got to me but the whole story had me committed to seeing this till the end. I loved it and it'll go into my collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not much martial arts but a good story line. March 27, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Not much martial arts but a good story line more than makes up for it. The scarface characrter could have been developed a little more. The movie kept my interest the whole time.

1.0 out of 5 stars No mercy for animals.
I hate moves where animals are killed or hurt for realism. In the first 15 minutes a rabbit was killed and a horse was injured to make this movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars SACRIFICE
This DVD started hesitating 3/4 the way through the movie; blanking out as if the recorder was attempting to jam two disk onto one disk. The end of the movie finally was shown.

1.0 out of 5 stars This was a horrible movie!
It was all in subtitles, poor continuity in the beginning and hardly any martial art actions. It just kept dragging on
and on. If you do watch this, try to be drunk. Read more
