It is several hundred years B.C., the Warring States period, a time of constant strife between the seven kingdoms of China, and the mighty Zhao army is making its way towards its nemesis, the Yan kingdom. In the Zhao army's way lies the small fiefdom of Liang, the central city of which cannot hope to withstand the fearsome Zhao onslaught. Their only hope lies with the nearby Mozi tribe, known far and wide for their particular skill at repelling sieges. As the flame of hope flickers at the edge of extinction, weaker hearts plead with the king of Liang to surrender, to throw the city's population to the mercy of the Zhao leaders, for the Mozi will not send their warriors to help. But help from the Mozi has arrived at the city gates -- a single man, unarmoured and humbly garbed. Add Synopsis In Portuguese

The story is very genuine, and if you're really into history I guess you'll fairly enjoy this movie. I have to be honest, I primarily just watched this movie because Siwon played in it (although I'm quite into history too). All in all, I think it really was a nice movie. I like the story and it isn't that hard to follow. The acting was very good, especially Andy Lau quite surprised me with his acting skills (I didn't know much about him, but he really is a great actor I have to say). On top of that, Siwon also did a great job here even though he really was a rookie in acting back then.
I gave the rewatch value a 3 because I think that once you've seen it, there really is no need to watch it again.
Overall I gave a Battle of Wits a 7, mainly because of the great acting and the very well executed plot.
I recommend this for people who are into ancient battles and for people who just want to see Siwon in his awesome long-haired glory.
