Cinema 1 - The Warlords
(NC16 - battle scenes) (127 minutes)
In the year 1850, the suffering of the Chinese people under the corrupt rule of the Qing dynasty set the stage for the Taiping Rebellion. During the chaos of the decade long civil war, 50 million people died from either hunger or battle.
In the fall of 1870, General Pang (Jet Li) stands high atop the city walls fully attired in governor's robes. Pang has taken a path of no return; had he chosen differently, he might have been one of the heroes to later overthrow the corrupt Qing imperial regime and establish a new China. He could have changed the course of history...
...But three people have changed the course of his life - helping him achieve his goal, but ultimately causing his demise. The two bandits are his sworn blood brothers: Zhao Er-Hu (Andy Lau) and Jiang Wu-Yang (Kaneshiro Takeshi). The woman who comes between them is Zhao's wife Lian (Xu Jinglei)...
