Strong battle violence and themes
|Actors:||Andy Lau, Ruby Lin, Peter Ho|
If you're not a fan of martial arts war epics then the past twelve months haven't been kind to you; Andy Lau, Maggie Q and Sammo Hung add their names to a very long list in Daniel Lee's (What Price Survival?) take on China's greatest literary classic Romance Of The Kingdoms. Lau stars as general Zhao Zilong, and it would seem that Asias answer to Mel Gibson is having problems taking off his armour after recent turns in both A Battle Of Wits and The Warlords. Zhao rises quickly in the ranks to become a top general under Liu Bei, and after many years of war he finds himself alone as the invincible general, he really is that good. Sadly for him and his shiny armour, its not much fun alone at the top so with a grand legacy at stake, Zhao leads his final charge against an army headed by Cao Cao's granddaughter Cao Ying (Maggie Q).
