THE WARLORDS (Theatrical Release China and Hong Kong 2007/2009)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 1.4|5.0 Stars√¨

The Warlords
begins at the level of a two star movie. By the end of the first twenty minutes, it drops to a one star movie. The Warlords seems to drag on and on and ON. Rather than being a GREAT Chinese movie, it ends as a 'ho-hum' movie.

After defeat, General Pang Qingyun (Jet Li) flees to outlying villages and attempts to organize the villagers into small bands of warrior-raiders.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

No. It fails to capture interest. Choose IP Man instead.
