Movie: The Lost Bladesman (2011)

The Lost Bladesman (2011) is a fictionalized epic war movie set in 200 A.D. during the late Eastern Han Dynasty.

This movie spots the appearances of historical figures in the Chinese history -
General Guan Yu (关羽) (Donnie Yen) and the infamous tyrannical warlord and chancellor, Cao Cao (曹操) (Jiang Wen).

Cao Cao attempts to recruit Guan Yu repeatedly but Guan Yu's loyalty lies with another warlord, who's also his sworn brother,
Liu Bei (刘备) (Alex Fong). Guan Yu faces numerous murderous ambushes while escorting Liu Bei's concubine, Qilan (孙丽) (Sun Li) back to Liu Bei. And that's what the whole movie is about.

First of all, if you're unfamiliar with the original novel of which the movie is based on, "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" and you aren't really into the history of China, you'll find yourself confused and clueless.

However, I do agree with this comment from IMDb: "The spectacular actions scenes are no doubt the highlight of this highly recommended movie. Guan Yu's famous expedition of "crossing five passes and slaying six generals" plays out in an episodic manner, with each sequence showcasing a unique martial arts style. Choreographed by Yen himself, action fans will be pleased to see various blades, spears, crossbows and arrows on display, as they come into use during the countless fight scenes."

In summary, if you like to watch Donnie Yen in action, you'd want to watch this movie. He's also the action choreographer of this movie. Mainland actor, Jiang Wen's performance as the sly tyrant Cao Cao is also pretty impressive.

Too bad that the Malaysian cinemas air the Cantonese version (dubbed) of this movie. I think the elaborate dialogues will sound more real to the audience if the Mandarin version is aired instead.

Anyway, Donnie Yen's fans should watch this movie! :D
