STARRING action cinema’s most acclaimed superstar, the legendary Jet Li, and featuring battle scenes from the action choreographer behind Oscar-nominated smash hits Hero, House Of Flying Daggers and Curse Of The Golden Flower comes a film that redefines the modern action epic.
Co-starring Takeshi Kaneshiro (Red Cliff) and Andy Lau (Infernal Affairs) reunited for the first time since their worldwide box office smash hit House Of Flying Daggers.
In the year 1850, the suffering of the 430 million-strong Chinese nation was at its height under the corrupt rule of the Qing dynasty. During the chaos of a decade long civil war, 50 million people died from either hunger or battle.
This infamous tyranny set the stage for the Taiping Rebellion, led by some of the most incredible military strategists the world has ever known.
From that chaos, three heroes would rise to unite armies and crush all who would seek to enslave them.
But the cost of victory would shatter their brotherhood and unleash tragedy and bloodshed across the nation. This is the incredible story of the last great warlords.
