Movie Info

It is the deadliest weapon made by man. The mere mention of its name fills hearts with terror. Long shrouded in mystery, it launches from a distance and locks onto the target's head, the internal blades decapitating the victim with the yank of a chain. A weapon of choice for elite fighters, the flying guillotine leaves victims begging for mercy. A secret brotherhood of assassins - known only as The Guillotines - were once favored by the Emperor, but are now a force of terror and oppression under a new regime. Exiled to a remote village and hunted by a squad of fighters with firearms that challenge their cold steel, The Guillotines must now outwit and outfight enemies from both sides. From the director of the smash hit INFERNAL AFFAIRS and LEGEND OF THE FIST: THE RETURN OF CHEN ZHEN comes a brutal tale of honor, revenge, and the ultimate weapon. (c) WellGoUSA

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (7)

The lack of rip-roaring martial arts or even a half-decent storyline will leave genre aficionados feeling short-changed.

The plot is of little importance - the spectacular action and gorgeous landscapes and costumes are what matter.

The blades fly as do the heads, but the movie remains disappointingly aground.

Jun 13, 2013 | Rating: 2/5

The Guillotines expends most of its energy in its first 30 minutes, leaving the audience with roughly 90 minutes of soapy Qing Dynasty fan fiction.

Jun 13, 2013 | Rating: C | Full Review…

A historical action epic set during the Qing dynasty that amounts to a bait-and-switch for wuxia fans stoked for steel-meets-flesh mayhem.

Jun 12, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A corny saga of social and generational conflict, it's ultimately yet another Chinese period epic that functions as a thinly veiled treatise on the nobility of socialist equality.
