      Curse of the Golden Flower, directed by Yimou Zhang is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for violence. The original release date was January 12, 2007 for United States audience. This movie falls in the genre of Action/Adventure/Drama/Romance and stars Chow Yun Fat as Emperor Ping, Li Gong as Empress Phoenix, Jay Chou as Prince Jai and Ye Liu as Crown Prince Wan.

      Emperor Ping takes control

      over his family and country extremely serious to the point of death to anyone, including his own family if they betray his rule. He has married the daughter of the neighbouring province in order to concrete his rule over the entire territory.

      But as with all families, there are secrets, but to speak ill of the reigning emperor is asking for your own execution.

      Empress Phoenix is prepared to do whatever ...

      • it takes to overthrow her husband and claim the throne. She enlists the services of the emperor’s eldest son, the Crown Prince, to assist her in her plan of conquest.

        The Crown Prince was warned prior to any such attempt by the Emperor that, what he does not give, do not take by force…but the Crown Prince was only trying to honor his mother’s wishes…a fatal mistake.

        The colors in this

        movie are captivating, it shows true deligence to the detail of the fashion director in charge. The action/fighting scenes where stunningly well choreographed. There is not much to complain about with this eye-popping, colorful depiction of Asian story telling.

        The extras were in abundance in this movie, one can only hope that they had enough money to pay them all. LOL!

        Apart from that, this movie is a great film…by any standards.
