Review : The Warlords

I went to check out Sunway Pyramid yesterday. After the extensive renovations, it looks really nice. Except that they lost their Egyptian feel in the new wing. It feels so much like Midvalley, with round ends – like the North and South courts.

I watched this movie yesterday at TGV Sunway Pyramid. Actually wanted to watch Across the Universe with Zakri (a friend of mine who I haven’t met for some time) but it wasn’t showing any more :( or perhaps it wasn’t showing in TGV.

Well before i get on about the movie, i want to complain about the cinema. It was LOUSY! First of all the lady at the counter who sold me the tickets was so silly. I asked which side the screen was  buying the tickets. And she told me the direct opposite. I had lousy seats! Like 4-5 seats from the front. The whole cinema was lousy anyway. The incline of the floor was so steep that the headrest of your seat is at the knees of the person behind u. Sucks!

The Warlords is a 2007 Chinese / Hong Kong martial arts / drama film directed by Peter Chan and starring Andy Lau, Jet Li and Takeshi Kaneshiro. The film is set in the 1860s, during the Taiping Rebellion in the late Qing Dynasty in China. The story, based on an unresolved crime in 1870, tells of three sworn brothers (played by Andy Lau, Jet Li and Takeshi Kaneshiro) who turn against one another over a beautiful woman (Xu Jinglei).

Yea, I went to watch a Mandarin movie. Hehe! I saw the trailer for the movie some time ago and it looks interesting. Its a very interesting story of love, war, fighting, friendship and of course brotherhood. It’s a good mix of elements told in narration by the cute cute Takeshi Kaneshiro. Hehe!

Rating : (*)(*)(*)(*)  4 stars – recommended :)
