Zhang Yimou's CURSE OF THE GOLDEN FLOWER

Zhang Yimou's CURSE OF THE GOLDEN FLOWER

Movie review by Dennis D. McDonald

This is a big, honking royal-family-melodrama/battlefield-extraveganza.

It’s garish, melodramatic, fantastic — and ultimately, boring.

If you enjoyed the opening and closing ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics, you might enjoy this, but beware; there is much flowing and spraying of blood in vast battle scenes that defy credulity.

This is a film more to be endured than enjoyed.

Still, Li Gong is gorgeous.
