From Lost Laowai:
But 3D knives flew at your head with sufficient regularity to make up for the convoluted plot, and the cinematography was gorgeous.
Well worth watching. Go with friends. Don’t try to figure out what’s being said. You’ll have much more fun that way.
From the Hollywood Reporter:
Props, instead of top-liner Jet Li, do most of the stunts in Flying Swords of Dragon Gate,Hong Kong director Tsui Hark's extravagant and berserk 3D swordplay blockbuster which squeezes court intrigue, star-crossed love and a treasure hunt into one over-booked desert inn. EmployingAvatar's Chuck Comisky to supervise the 3D technology, the film is single-minded in its wham bam delivery of stereoscopic stimulation. By contrast, Tsui, who is also writer and producer, appears absent-minded when trying to fit a ragtag bunch of characters into a distended plot teeming with more cross-dressing and mistaken identities than Twelfth Night.
