The upcoming period martial arts epic 14 Blades which is being directed by Daniel Lee (Black Mask) looks mighty cool, based on this leaked footage. Certified Kung Fu badass Donnie Yen has a starring role in the film so that makes it a must see in my book.
Set during the Ming Dynasty the movie will depict the exploits of a group of elite assassins known as the Imperial Guards. Trained since early childhood to become masters of the sword in service of the emperor, these men carried out their tasks with deadly precision. The video explains the rational behind the title more eloquently than I could so I’ll just shut up so you can watch it. Enjoy.
