The epic historical fantasy The Assassin has some of the best cinematography I have seen in many years, and deserves to be watched on that count alone. But when you add in the plot and the sub plots, the characters, the costumes, the FX, the sets, the props, and all the other details that go into making a modern film, this one has it all. Well, except for the dialog, and it probably has that for people who speak the language it was written in. The Assassin is worth checking out, if only to find out if it is as good as its advertising indicates.
