I never grow tired of watching Donnie Yen kick loads of ass on the big screen. The guy is insanely talented, and when you sit down with something he’s involved with, you know you’re in for one hell of a good time. The boys and girls over at Film Smash got their nifty little hands on the new poster for Alan Mak and Felix Chong’s upcoming epic “The Lost Bladesman”, which co-stars Sun Li, Jiang Wen, Alex Fong, and Andy On. Not only does Mr. Yen star in the flick, he also serves as the action choreographer. Sweet.
Here’s what it’s all about:
During the warring period of the three kingdoms, ancient China is in turmoil. To unify the country general CAO CAO, the real power behind the emperor, enlists the aid of the greatest warrior in the land GUAN YUN CHANG (Donnie Yen). However, Guan Yun Chang is a loyal friend of CAO CAO’s enemy LIU BEI. To persuade the peerless warrior to fight, Cao Cao takes his beloved QI LAN (Sun Li) hostage.
After leading Cao Cao’s forces to victory Guan Yun Chang sets out with Qi Lan to rejoin Liu Bei. But now Cao Cao has deemed him too great a threat to live, and on the journey he must face all the forces at the emperor’s command sent to destroy him.
“The Lost Bladesman” opens in Hong Kong on April 28th.
