    Synopsis


    The Guillotines
    Infernal Affairs co-director Andrew Lau takes the helm for this remake of the Shaw Brothers classic Master of the Flying Guillotine set during the fall of the Qing Dynasty, when a group of clandestine assassins are repurposed for a malevolent new cause. When Emperor Yong Zheng rules the land, he maintained his strength through the power of the Guillotines, an elite team of assassins tasked with eliminating all opposition. Though the Guillotines are deemed disposable when Emperor Qian Long comes into power, the new ruler attempts to consolidate his might by unleashing the gang of killers on the defeated Han Chinese, leading to a violent power struggle between the oppressed masses, and the malevolent monarch. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Loved the action and concept of such high tech weapon in ancient China is a bit of a reach but then again the Chinese were really advanced with the use of gun powder Overall really worth viewing

      An excellent movie that I will recommend to any karate fan. It is one of those movies that you will either love it or not like it at all but I think a lot of people will enjoy it.

      It could have used a little more action. Feature the unique weapons a little more. So I give this movie an average rating.
