Not as bloody as I thought it would be. But nevertheless a great movie. Superb acting by the trio. Especially Andy Lau... I feel.
Known for his well-produced films which are box office and critical successes, Chan’s signature is clear in the high production values of this 125-minute movie.
The saga boasts of several big-scale war sequences which are exquisitely-choreographed and grittily-shot without losing pace. The thousands of soldiers, horses, bows and arrows will leave you in awe, thinking that the movie is executed as well as, if not better, than the many Hollywood productions you have seen before. Couple that with some breathtaking cinematography, tight editing and dramatic music score by a Pan-Asian production team: You’d be leaving the theatre with praises for the movie.
