A straightforward mission turns into much more for an expert martial artist. During the tumultuous time of the Shenlong Era of the Tang Dynasty, martial artist Xie Yun Liu is commanded by his master to escort Prince Li Chong Mao to the capital city of Chang'an. As Yun Liu and Chong Mao are traveling through the Fenghua Valley, they witness Crown Prince Li Chong Jun and Princess Li Hua Wan being attacked, and Yun Liu ends up reluctantly coming to the rescue. Hailed as their savior, Yun Liu is invited back to the imperial Li family’s mansion for a celebration, only to find himself in the thick of other assassination attempts by the warring Wu family. When Yun Liu is challenged to a deadly battle by Lu Wei Lou, the head of the Ming Sect, can he survive the predicament with his life? ~~ Adapted from the popular online game “Jian Wang 3 (JX3).” Edit Translation

I love period/costume dramas with sword fighting – the type where you fly about completely defying the laws of physics (and there was a good deal of that here) so it was right up my alley. There is a good balance of elements – intrigue, sword fighting, battle for the throne and of course, a touch of romance. The movie is also visually appealing with actors and actresses who are handsome and beautiful with intricate costumes and stunning scenery.

However, the ending was rather abrupt and made it feel like this was a pilot with more to come. The movie shows much promise and I’m trusting those that put this together so meticulously are planning a nice long series to satiate my thirst or I will be devastated! Perhaps this is a movie to be fully appreciated only by those who know the game.
