Marguerite, South Africa. 15 July 2014

This is an extremely complicated tale of brotherhood, personal betrayal and political treachery, made all the more difficult to understand because the viewer must rely on reading the suibtitles while watching the action. The main chartacter, Pang Qing-Yun (Jet Li), is a fictional;ised recreation of a Chinese general who supposedly fought for both sides during the 1860s era of the Taiping Rebellion. After surviving a particularly vicious battle, Pang joins two bandit leaders, Zhao Er Hur (Andy Lau) and Jiang Wu Yang (Takeshi Kaneshiro) and persuades them to join the struggling imperial Qing army as mercenaries. The plan is to fight for 3 years and to take enough war booty to be able to return to their village and live in peace. To achieve this aim, the three swear a blood oath. This oath of filial loyalty is sorely tested during a war that lasts much longer than expected and political alliances that are formed and abandoned from battle to battle. Pang is seduced both by his feelings for the wife of his blood brother Zhao, and by his growing lust for power - a deadly combination that can only lead to tragedy.
The film needs to be watched more than once if one is to appreciate the fine political nuances of the story, rather than just to ingulge oneself in the spectacle of the brutal battle scenes.
