I love hkentreview.com: "I can't say that I'm surprised about HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS' failure to get an Oscar nomination in the Best Foreign Film category. For the first 70 minutes, it looked to be another smash hit where people tell their friends: "YOU! MUST! SEE! THIS! MOVIE!". Then, the plot twists and the film collapses like the Ming Dynasty in the face of the Manchu horde. Instead of leaving the theatre with an "I gotta tell my friends about this" vibe, you're left with a Krusty the Klown "what the hell was that?" look on your face."
