Set in the midst of war and political upheaval during the Taiping Rebellion of the 1860s, THE WARLORDS is a spectacular historical action film starring Jet Li (Fearless, Lethal Weapon 4) as General Pang, who barely survives a brutal massacre of his fellow soldiers by playing dead, and joins a band of bandits led by Er Hu (Andy Lau, Mo Gong, Protege) and Wu Yang (Takeshi Kaneshiro). After fighting back attackers from an helpless village, the three men take an oath to become “blood brothers,” pledging loyalty to one another until death, but things quickly turn sour and the three men become embroiled in a web of political deceit, and a love triangle between Pang, Er Hu and a beautiful courtesan (Wu Jing-Lei). Winner of 8 Hong Kong Film Awards, including Best Picture, Director (Peter Ho-Sun Chan), Cinematography and Actor (Jet Li). (China/Hong Kong, 2007)

“Directors Peter Chan and Wai Man Yip have made what is easily one of the biggest, most epic stories in the history of modern Chinese cinema. The true story of a 19th century General Pang (Jet Li) and his blood brothers, is beautifully shot, incredibly moving, and has as much action as anyone could ever want." -We Are Movie Geeks

“Boundless energy and drive.” -Time Out London

“Think Lawrence of Arabia, with more mud than sand, or Patton: Lust For Glory with swords and arrows... Li delivers a different, powerful performance as a complex antihero.” –Empire

The film’s running time is 110 minutes, and is rated R. In Mandarin; fully subtitled in English.
