Movie Info

Award-winning martial arts director Stanley Tong (Rumble in the Bronx, Supercop) joins forces with director Anthony Szeto to deliver this computer animated martial arts adventure for the entire family. A fantastical version of the Chinese ancient Middle Kingdom, Dragonblade: The Beginning traces the adventures of an adolescent martial arts enthusiast named Lang. Lang dreams of one day coming into possession of the legendary Dragon Blade sword, a mythical weapon of supreme power that can only be wielded by one who is noble in spirit and pure at heart. When a powerful monster appears to threaten the people of Lang's village, however, the heroic teen realizes his only hope of saving the day is to track down the Dragon Blade - and fast. Perhaps with a little help from a plucky fairy bird named Bali-Ba, Lang will finally be able to realize his dream of tracking down the elusive sword and unleashing his inner hero. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Okay - I hear about some film in the theaters of Hong Kong that's like Shrek, except it's full of karate stuff. So, I go see what its all about. Well, I don't know what's Shrek got to do with it, but the fight stuff does have IMPACT! Damn - I've played video games before, but I don't see any moves like they got on this film. You have to give it to them people in Hong Kong, they sure know how to do them fight moves for films, even when its a cartoon!
