Martial arts action-drama from Chinese director Zhang Yimou. Leo (Andy Lau) and Jin (Takeshi Kaneshiro) have been given the task of ferreting out the leaders of a revolutionary faction known as the Flying Daggers. Jin arrives in disguise at a brothel, where the members are allegedly working and is introduced to a beautiful blind dancer named Mei (Zhang Ziyi). But when Jin drunkenly attempts to have his way with her, Leo is forced to intervene and, after gaining her trust, arrests her and informs her that she'll be tortured if she doesn't tell all she knows about the Flying Daggers.

Be aware that this is trimmed for horsefalls, due to the Animal Cruelty Act (18s).

They trimmed it because it's the law. In Hollywood productions, they usually have trained horses to fake falls, but here they used tripwires, which is cruel to the animals.
