Love, love, love. What life is worth living if you don't have love? All you need is love, for love is a many splendored thing ... or so the songs go. What's particularly heart-wrenching involving such affairs of the heart is how to come to grips when it seems like civilizations are destined to keep star-crossed lovers apart. Now that's the stuff of real drama - classic drama, anyway - the likes of which William `Billy' Shakespeare plumbed in his day; and that's near and dear where THE ASSASSIN'S BLADE tries in vain to go. While it doesn't quite get there in perfect shape, I'm happy to say that it gets pretty close, despite some uneven pacing and even a weirdly unfunny but comical first half that feels more like TOOTSIE OF ARABIA than it does CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN YENTL.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and characters. If you're the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I'd encourage you to skip down to the last two paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you're accepting of a few modest hints at `things to come,' then read on ...)

Zhu Yanzhi (played by the stunning Charlene Choi) is a young maiden in a world ruled by men. In order to be accepted into her land's male-only martial arts academy, she's going to have to do something about her gender. Before you can say `Mulan,' she's wrapped her lady parts in a sheet and convinced her teachers that she's a young boy, but that certain something about her keeps forcing her mentor Liang (Chun Wu) to daydream inappropriate romantic thoughts.

Not a terrible movie, but not great either. I watched this for Wu Chun, but the overall costumes and colors were very beautiful. I love romance movies, and Wu Chun did alright, He definitely feels like Quan in Hana Kimi. Charlene Choi was adorable albeit a bit exaggerated and slightly annoying, and Hu Ge played a handsome opposite to Wu Chun. The reason I gave this a three was that even though the plot was bearable, it was just really poorly paced. More screen time for longer meaningful interactions between Wu Chun and Charlene to grow their chemistry would've been great, instead, the romance felt rushed and stale. There were actions scenes, but most of them were sub par compared to the fight with Hu Ge and Louis Fan. I would dare to say that Louis' Fan's role in this although short was a great scene and held great weight. Harlem Yu was a joy and really fun to watch which makes me sad to give this movie such an avg rating. Overall not a bad movie, but it could have been more.

Zhu Yanzhi (Charlene Choi, "The Sorcerer and the White Snake") is sent packing out into the mountains to learn martial arts from the elite Soul Ease Clan. Unfortunately only men are trained at Soul Ease, so Yanzhi must disguise herself as a man. She's picked on by trainer and "big brother" Liang Zhongshan (Wu Chun, "Magic to Win"), but an attraction develops. Yanzhi has been plagued with the man of her dreams while she sleeps for as long as she can remember, but has only ever seen the back of his head. Shan has had the same dreams about a woman. Little do the two realize that they were meant to be together. Standing in their way is Yanzhi's childhood friend Ma Cheng'en (Hu Ge, "1911") who has an undying love for Yanzhi and has been arranged to marry Yanzhi by Yanzhi's parents.

There's a big deal made about dressing Yanzhi up as a man, but apparently all that means is wrapping a bunch of gauze around Yanzhi's breasts so she doesn't poke through her clothes when it gets cold. There is literally no attempt made to talk in a deep voice or wear fake facial hair. Yanzhi's just acts super feminine all the time and nobody ever notices. She's actually quite annoying in the first half of the film as she mostly just screams at the top of her lungs, is totally helpless in every situation, is terrible at martial arts, is mostly just taking up space, and overacts to the worst degree. She takes the clan by storm with her sewing skills and admiration for butterflies.

The humor seems really forced. Most of it occurs when Yanzhi and Shan are first getting to know each other and mostly involves them being conceited douchebags to one another. Teacher Herbal Head (Harlem Yu), a medicine expert at Soul Ease Clan, relies on nothing but diarrhea jokes whenever he shows up on-screen.

It was Romeo and Juliet with Kung fu. But I really enjoyed it, early Hu Ge as the supporting cast.
