Critic Reviews for 14 Blades

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (4)

  • Director, co-writer and production designer Daniel Lee keeps things moving so quickly, there's little time to worry about such basics as where we are or what's actually going on.

  • While "14 Blades" grinds on perhaps a half-hour too long, its ambitions and energies show that for a fresh take on the western, go east.

    August 21, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Come for Ku's joyful choreography, stay for Yen's most memorable post-comeback performance.

    August 19, 2014 | Full Review…
  • But not even the most garbled Tsui Hark joint is as unintelligible as 14 Blades, a film that's lost in its own backyard.

    August 19, 2014 | Rating: 1.5/5.0 | Full Review…
  • An immensely gifted physical performer, Donnie Yen isn't strong enough an actor to suggest an authentic inner life to his character beyond a vague sense of stone-faced dissatisfaction.

    August 18, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Stylish package has thesps hitting their marks (and each other), but also keeps the human drama from being swamped by wirework and CGI effects.

Audience Reviews for 14 Blades

  • Jul 12, 2011
    Pretty cool martial arts movie. Well, i say pretty cool. They all seem the same to me but i suppose martial arts fans might say that about horror! When some old emporer gets overthrown by a massive wanker, one of his best people is sent out to find out who's still on the emporers side but due to a betrayal, our hero becomes the most wanted man about town. I'm not a big martial arts fan like i used to be years ago so can't judge to harshly but this seems like an average story surrounded by some brilliant fight scenes and its those scenes that make it pretty cool!

    Truly breaktaking martial arts epic film, but it also mixed with a love story. It's about time Donnie Yen made an impact yet again in the fantasy wuxia-pian genre, given the rather recent dismal films with <i>An Empress and the Warriors</i>, and Tsui Hark's <i>Seven Swords</i>. He gives a brilliant performance as the ex-Jinyiwei guard. Writer-director Daniel Lee managed to create a film consisting of a successful amalgamation of wuxia-pian elements, with iconic fight action sequences set in tea houses, desert duels, forest brawls with abandoned temples and exotic cities enhanced by CG to play host to a film complete with double crosses, a prized possession that everyone is after, and had time to sneak in unrequited romance.

    Donnie Yen slides from the realistic Kung Fu films into the realm of the fantasy with ease. He and Vickie Zhao do great work, but Chun Wu as the Judge of the desert and especially Kate Tsui as the ultimate female bad-ass Tuo-Tuo are stand outs. Lots of action mingled with human drama brings a motion picture well worth your while.

    looked a interesting story, and some nice spectacle going on, but it dident drag me in like most asian films of this kind tend to do
