After months of waiting, Rihanna and Chris Martin finally put together a music video to their heartbreaking duet. It's very Asian-inspired with Rihanna playing a geisha, flying ninja and Shinto goddess all in the same video. Chris Martin, meanwhile, stumbles around with a five o'clock shadow looking like the Last Samurai.

Loved the visuals and loved the special effects. But this video comes off a little less emotional than it should. The vocals are haunted and beautiful, and there are echoes of that here, but there's no breaking point in the video, like there is in the song.
The "you really hurt me" lines called for devastation. Instead, we get slightly perturbed and annoyed.
Nonetheless the final result comes together wonderfully. It's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon redone as an interracial love affair.
