"Why don't you just kill me?"
"How can I? I don't hate you enough."
Corey Yuen, director of The Defender, The Enforcer, Dead or Alive, The Legend, The Legend II, and Above the Law, delivers Blade of Kings. The storyline for this movie actually wasn't bad and the action scenes and the unique weapons were very cool. The magic scenes were a bit cheesy. The acting was good and the cast includes Jackie Chan, Donnie Yen, Daniel Wu, Edison Chen, Charlene Choi, and Bingbing Fan.
"I really hate aggressive people."
I watched this film off Netflix because it starred the legendary Donnie Yen and Jackie Chan. They were both awesome in this movie and the female characters were also well done. The use of the magic elements were too over the top that made this film fairly mediocre to me. I would skip this unless you're a diehard fan of the genre.
