Synosis
In the early Republic of China, the whole country was trodden by incessant civil wars. The new ruling warlord Cao Ying sent his son Cao Shaolun to take over the remote village Pucheng. Cold-blooded and temperamental, Shaoun killed the innocents and orphans. The guardians of Pucheng arrested him and the guardian commander Yang Kenan planned to execute him after the trial.
Zhang Yi, a colonel under warlord Cao Ying, learnt of what happened and came to Pucheng demanding the release of Shaolun. Zhang came across Ma Feng, who learnt martial arts from his mentor. Ma witnessed the outrageous behaviour of Shalolun and refused to take Zhang’s side. He was determined to assist Yang to keep Shaolun behind bars.

Zhang failed to rescue Shaolun. Cao’s army invaded Pucheng and caused numerous casualties and deaths. The brave heroes swore to fight the battle to protect their homeland.

Personal review by Tselyn:
With a star studded cast, it's no wonder it's dubbed as the Martial Arts flim of the year. The martial stunts/ actors was pretty decent and looks real which was a big win for the flim. However, the plot wasn't strong enough to entice me to want to watch it again. You know the feeling of watching a good movie and wanting to watch again? Well, this is not one of them. The plot was weak as it failed to give a good storyline on why this/that happened. no head no tail basically.

 It did teach me a couple of things like upholding to justice, teamwork and brotherhood which we are lacking in our society these days. *just saying* 

I'd recommend you to watch it if you're a fan of Louis Koo, Sean Lau or Eddie Peng.
