One of the most stunningly realized spectacles of all time is unleashed, pushing dazzling action and extraordinary scenes of combat to breathtaking limits rarely seen in modern cinema. This incredible story of the last great Warlords is the epic reborn!

Under the corrupt rule of the Qing dynasty, the lawlessness of the decade long civil war has ravaged a nation. From the chaos, three heroes will rise to unite armies and crush all who would seek to enslave them. But the cost of victory will shatter their brotherhood and unleash tragedy and bloodshed across the country.

Starring Jet Li, cinema's most acclaimed action legend, with Andy Lau and Takeshi Kaneshiro, the stars of "House Of Flying Daggers" back on screen together for the first time and with action directed by the creative genius behind Oscar nominated smash hits "Hero" and "House Of Flying Daggers", "The Warlords" is an epic that redifines modern action cinema.

In years gone by films like this would probably been dubed, which if you've seen any of these you'll know how ridiculous these movies used to be, i thank our lucky stars that films are in general made with authentic dialog.
This film 'the warlords' is both colourfull and dynamic, with really good battle scenes and a really good story-line.
'Jet li' plays a 'warlord' who by battle victories strives to unite a nation, at the height of his success however his friendships come under pressure.
This is a great action movie that is easy to follow by way of stunning visuals, the sub-titles become secondary to your enjoyment factor..............may get the 'blu-ray' version at some point in the future...............worth both watching and buying.

I agree with all the above, this film has depth, if your looking for a martial arts films like one armed boxer or drunken master plays tiddley winks! Then this not for you, the film is well acted, well Directed. I was surprised at Jet Li's preformance and also slightly moved at the end. The battle scenes are amazing, but the story as a whole distracts from them and leaves you with one major lesson never trust politicians

 Jet-Li at his unflcinhing best!

This war epic is something to behold - it's a brutal film about fraternity and love, an odd combo that works as an effective action/drama. It's hardly original, but manages to always hold your interest. It's never overly stylised, but carries a slick representation and it's clear this was made with a passion for the subject matter. Fans of epics, martial-arts and strong acting should check this out. It often falls into familiar territory, but if anything, it's only emulating the best of its genre and that's by no means a bad thing.

 Phenomanal!!

Wow! Jet li always manage's to astound me. I really enjoy the chinease/asian movie's, it give's it a sense of class. A beutifully choreographed movie such as other's of this type. The story, scenery and actor's are amazing, i really enjoyed the battle scene's too. An all out outstandingly beautiful movie from start to finnish.
