Movie Info

Two very different men vie for the affection of a beautiful and powerful woman in this historical epic from Hong Kong. During the Era of the Warring States, two rival kingdoms are fighting for control of China, the Yan and the Zhao. Muyong Xuehu (Donnie Yen) is leader of the Yan armies and guides his forces to victory, but not before the Yan emperor is murdered. Muyong is declared the new emperor of the Yan territories, angering Wu Ba (Guo Xiaodong), the late leader's nephew who killed his uncle in hopes of taking the throne. There is much public discord over Muyong's appointment, so he names as his second in command Yan Fei'er (Kelly Chen), the late king's beautiful daughter and only child. Muyong is in love with Yan Fei'er and wants to protect her, but she's a brave and headstrong woman, unafraid to put herself in the heat of battle. When a would-be killer attempts to murder Yan Fei'er, she's rescued by an unlikely benefactor, Duan Lanquan (Leon Lai), an aspiring inventor who loves in the woods. Yan Fei'er falls for the clever Duan, who has invented a machine that can fly, and when she learns that the Yan kingdom is once again under attack, she must choose between her two lovers as she returns to her people's battle for freedom. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Incredibly refreshing! This movie has the perfect balance of character development, and action. It borrows heavily from nearly every genre, and culture, without getting too muddled. It's a beautifully shot, beautifully costumed movie, that has a fairytale quality. Wonderful.

    Loved this. If this was the last martial arts, Asian warrior flick I ever see in my lifetime this would be it...! Well choreographed, well acted, well balanced movie showing benefits from the contrasts between war and peace. An empress is chosen (against her will) to rule a kingdom that was once run by her father. Having been injured in the midst of a war, the king has made his decision to let an orphan he raised to be the heir to his throne.Being that the orphan and the empress were the best of friends since childhood...alot of animosity boils within the ranks of power because the bloodline should be a male heir, rule and a woman shouldn't rule...before the movie ends, she handles her empire and the occupants..with royalty. Beautifully crafted, well filmed with some war violence, this movie is a winner!

    The film has a terrible story and some uninteresting characters. I did like the cast and the some of the fight scenes are engaging.

    Decent story though not very original... costumes were intricate and amazing, though they looked like they were made of rubber at times. Entertaining
