A guard accused of murder and three swordsmen sworn to hunt him down are all frozen during the Ming Dynasty. When they are thawed out 400 years later, the foursome come back to life and promptly resume their battle, wrecking havoc on the modern world.~Cammila Collar
The first part in a series starring Donnie Yen as an accused Ming era general falsely framed a traitor but unable to clear his name because he and his accusers are caught in a huge avalanche that freezes them in ice until they are accidentally thawed out in modern day Hong Kong.
Lots of Kung Fu action and Stephen Chow style silliness but still very entertaining as Donnie Yen adapts to 21st century life and attempts to find a way back to his past.
I am a huge fan of Donnie Yen and buy all of his movies when they become available on blu-ray. Donnie Yen seems to have a lot of hit or miss movies and this was more of a miss. This wasn't a bad movie, but it wasn't great another. As someone who loves his Ip Man movies and SPL Killzone, this is just not up to par with those. If you are a fan of Donnie Yen i would still recommend checking this movie out.
not one of donnie yen's best , but still better than special id. I'm a big martial arts fan and I like donnie alot, his fights are awesome to watch. This movie on the other hand needed a few more well placed fight scenes mixed in. The story was used so many times but his twist on it was decent enough. I hope part 2 has more action. Still at 14.99 you cant beat that price for a new release.
Donnie Yen hasn't been putting out many good movies of late, this is just another so so movie of recent which is becoming the norm for him now a days! If you have Netflix check it out on there before you decide to buy this!
