During the late Ming Dynasty, the Chinese imperial court is plagued by corruption as eunuchs usurp state power and the reigning emperor is deemed incompetent. The Jinyi Wei (literally: Brocade-clad Guards) is the government's secret police, trained in clandestine combat since childhood, they are in charge of conducting missions to ensure peace and stability within the empire. They have the authority to prosecute anyone deemed as an enemy of the state and they devote their lives and lethal prowess to serving the emperor only. When the organization was first founded, the Jinyi Wei took orders directly from the emperor, but now they are under the control of the eunuch faction. The chief eunuch Jia Jingzhong is plotting with an exiled noble, Prince Qing, to rebel against the emperor and seize power. Jia orders Qinglong, the Jinyi Wei chief, to kill the Imperial Councilor Zhao Shenyan and take Zhao's safebox, which supposedly contains a list of names of traitors.

I admit that at first I watched this just because Wu Chun was in it, but despite the fact that he was supporting character, the movie was rather good. It is the typical chinese kung fu movie, but because it has a historical background the layout of the film is slightly different to fit that time. Since it was in the Ming Dynasty, the invention of metal contraptions were present, so it is not the traditional Chinese kung fu movies like crouching tiger and house of flying daggers kind of thing. The plot line goes rather fast, so paying attention in the beginning is very crucial because it lays a foundation for the rest of the movie. Overall, it was a good action movie with very interesting sound effects. If you like chinese action movies then you might also enjoy this film as well. Also the complex plot is very intriguing.

There's quite a number of star actors in this movie and the story goes along quite fast, not giving the audience much of a breather. The scenery is good, the quality of the fighting sequences quite impressive. Donnie does a good job (as usual) of fighting the baddies, and hands together to Kate Tsui, the other fighter, who I don't think is a martial artist at all, but gives quite a convincing performance.

The main actors are, of course, good looking and give a stellar performance, but credit also to the supporting cast, all of whom give credos to the story. Applause to the fighting scenes - they're quite different from the standard kung fu stuff. The special effects are good, not many scenes of flying around on wires, which I don't really like, as they're sometimes too exaggerated.

I'd watch it again if it was a rainy day and I wanted to see a decent film with a hero beating some bad guys.
