14 Blades movie review

Day before i went back Kampar to celebrate my CNY and since my company only operate half days, me and Ms Pan decided to catch a movie before back hometown, since she not preferred to watch comedy then 14 blades was the best choice.




Here some short synopsis:
During the Ming Dynasty, the Emperor of China possessed one weapon greater than all others, the Imperial Guards, an elite force of assassins recruited from street orphans. Trained in clandestine combat from childhood, the Imperial Guards were masters of the 14 Blades, eight being for torture, five for killing and the last blade reserved for suicide when a mission failed. Above the law, with a license to kill, the Imperial Guards devoted their lives to the service of the Emperor alone. When the Imperial Court is taken over by evil eunuch Jia, the best of the Imperial Guards, Qinglong (Yen) and Xuanwu, are assigned to steal a list identifying those still loyal to the Emperor. However unbeknownst to Qinglong, the Imperial Guards have fallen under the control of Jia, and during the mission Qinglong is betrayed by Xuanwu. Now as the most wanted man in the land, Qinglong must seek out and rally the loyalists to rise against Jia and restore the Emperor to power.


nice body cum tattoo..

My summary:
Erm, i dun think is this suitable for festival season, this movie started with killing ending with killing too...Too violent for this festives season. About the plot of this movie, erm..not developed very equally, the starting of this movie is so short, maybe you won't understand how it started and ended just like that, without any twist in the movie. (that my personal opinion...) About the choreography of this movie is not that nice compared to Donnie Yen's previous movie Ip Man, mayb different dynasty different fighthing skill...

About Kate Tsui, she only have one same emotion thoroughout the whole movie, scream and try to kill the others....it true, from starting to the ending, the same screaming and same killing stance...HAHAHA...

The Imperial Guard is like a Ming Dynasty Batman, the box can do so many things...just like batman belt...

My overall review: 6.5/10

p/s: now waiting to watch All well end well 2010...
