The cast is luring but the story... not so much.
It actually starts quite interesting. A bunch of rebels plan to free their leader from prison and kill the king who doesn't have the right to be on the throne in their eyes. And only one prison guard is strong enough to oppose them.

The biggest problem of the movie is its lack of explanation. Even though there's some information given in the beginning, it still fails to bond with the audience because the characters are not introduced enough. Some pretty stereotype figures who all seem to come from an action adventure game. And the build-up is not that far away either. You have your superhero who has to fight his way through a bunch of enemies who get stronger by the person. He gets tired pretty early on and suffers one wound after another but he still manages to beat the strongest opponents. What I missed here was an excuse for his identity that would explain at least a bit of his outstanding strength.

Martial arts are really good, and I can't complain about them one bit. But the story was lacking and almost every character was not introduced enough to either sympathize with or despise them. The most disappointed character for me was the king who had a short appearance where he looked rather crazy than goodhearted.

It's also such a shame that the lack in the character writing didn't give the cast an opportunity to make their figures shine. There was so much potential. And in the end, the only one who remained likable in my eyes was our superhero.

Recommended with reservation. Only if you're very deep into the cast and a fan of martial arts.

It is a film based on the background of the biography of Kim In-hoon  and Joo Hae-in ... CGI and cinematography are impeccable but the  saturation of the genre does not excite.
"The  Age of Blood" is nothing less than a martial arts action film with  martial arts action drama mix based on unregistered Hwang Il-dul  recorded in 1728 after Yeongjo's fourth year, Kim Ji-ho ( Chung Hae-in), who was left to the National Assembly as a member of  the National Bank, recorded the story of nightly confrontation against  Kim Yi-hoon (Kim Ji-hoon)
The film shows the whole biography recorded in history from the opening to the prologue in the form of animation. It is intended to ensure the purpose of focusing too much on Hoo-il.
From then on, the "age of reverse revolt" clearly distinguishes its advantages and disadvantages. The good thing is that this "action" is filled firmly at night. On  the other hand, the downside is that it is difficult to understand  countless characters like Kim Ho, Lee In-Su, This can be seen as a big  risk in the movie "martial arts" which is a character attraction game.
