Noel Murray Los Angeles Times The bluntness keeps the film from approaching greatness, although history buffs and genre fans might appreciate a World War II story told from a unique, non-Western perspective. Jul 24, 2023 Full Review Aja Romano Vox As much as Tony Leung was made for subtle but heady roles like this, Hidden Blade belongs to Wang Yibo, and so does this review. Feb 28, 2023 Full Review Simon Abrams RogerEbert.com Gorgeous and empty. Rated: 2/4 Feb 18, 2023 Full Review Joshua Polanski Boston Hassle It’s a gorgeous spy-noir, with hardly a boring composition in it—and yet, I’m not sure I’d jump to recommend it and its empty calories to many. Jul 9, 2024 Full Review Sean Gilman The Chinese Cinema Cheng Er, in both Hidden Blade and The Wasted Times, is not after suspense but rather mystery: the tension (and fun) of the film lies not in anticipating what comes next, but in trying to figure out what is happening and why. Nov 11, 2023 Full Review Kate Sánchez But Why Tho? A Geek Community Hidden Blade is a film that attempts to shock its audience, drilling home how terrifying and heartbreaking war is. That said...Hidden Blade twists the story too many times that it begins to buckle under itself. Rated: 7/10 Feb 25, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

Emmeline A This movie is a must see! Excellent story plot and the twist is so unexpected. Can’t get enough of the character, Mr Ye. Wang Yibo really brought his A game! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/25/23 Full Review Laura M Beautiful score and visuals! Tony was instantly charming and smooth, while Yibo held you down with his intense, simmering gaze. Story is laid out like a puzzle, non linear, and forces you to pay attention as you look for clues about what side each character is truly spying for. This film gets better with each viewing! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/19/23 Full Review Linda Comfortable and spacious seats. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/18/23 Full Review classicgeek180805 Excellent ensemble cast, great editing and cinematography. The action scenes were intense and well executed. The movie is a good tribute to the unsung heroes of war who will forever be ‘hidden blades’. Worth watching especially for those who like spy noir films. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/15/23 Full Review M F L This is a fantastic art house film! Mr. Leung is in his element. The big fight scene is worth the price of admission. Both Mr. Wangs are convincing. Yibo brings the house down. I sincerely regret that I ever thought he couldn't show emotion. Mr. Cheng, the writer/director, is an artist. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/09/23 Full Review Bluecloudwings I know YiBo is a good dancer but I didnt know he is such an amazing actor on the big screen. He did a beautiful job delivering this role. Whether its the emotional scenes, or action scenes, he simply delivered an impeccable job. No need to mention, he spoke three languages in the movie. No doubt that he is talented, but his hard work should not be diminished just because it seemed so easy for him. I just want to say, YiBo, please make more movies! Hollywood directors, please spot this young, talented, hardworking and handsome actor! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/05/23 Full Review Read all reviews
