Based on the 16th century historical document entitled The Malay Annals, Clash of Empires is an action-packed epic feature film with mythical characters, magical moments and dazzling visual effects. Merong Mahawangsa was a descendant of Alexander The Great - a renowned naval captain and traveller who came to Asia several hundred years ago.

1.0 out of 5 stars Malaysia's Entry for the Golden Turkey Awards. 5 Jun 2011
By Bob Salter TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Oh boy, I thought I had plumbed the depths already, but this one goes down all the way to the bottom of the Phillipine trench, which is not so far away from Malaysia where this utter dross was made. All sounded fairly promising. A film very loosely based on the 16th century Malay chronicles about a Roman prince who travels east to marry a Chinese princess of the Han dynasty. An East meets West historical extravaganza along the lines of Valerio Massimo Manfredi's book "Empire of the Dragons", or so I forlornly hoped. What I got was very different! I won't give any detailed synopsis, because I simply don't want to waste my time reviewing such utter rubbish. I wasted quite enough watching it! Lets just say everything about the film is dire, which sums it up nicely. It was apparently Malaysia's second most expensive film ever. What a terrible waste of money. The acting is worse than that in my village panto. The plot is non existent. The action is about the worst I have ever seen, with special effects that beggar belief for all the wrong reasons. The fact that I watched this film to the end is testament to my stubborn streak, that merges seamlessly into stupidity. I have never watched a Malaysian film, and after this experience it is doubtful I will ever watch another. After watching a few decent films recently it was back to reality with a vengeance. Don't be fooled by the cover. As usual be guided by the Amazon star rating which is never too far away from the truth. It does not even fall into the Ed Wood "its so bad it has to be good" category. Just do yourself a favour and avoid wasting 107 minutes of your life. Surely this film deserves to sweep the honours at the Golden Turkey awards. This is a 21 carat doozy!

3.0 out of 5 stars Battle for the Hamlet 7 Aug 2012
Format:DVD
Despite the cover art and blurb, this is a fictional sword and scorcery tale of an arranged marriage between a Roman Prince and a Chineese Princess, an alliance forged to keep open the trade routes between the two mightiest empires in the known world. As can be expected, things do not go to plan as the Princess is taken hostage by pirates. Despite being described as the battle for Asia [and the false impression that the two empires go to war against each other] the two work together to perform a rescue and defeat the pirates.
My main complaints about this film are the misleading plot-line and end scene photos on the box [lose 1 star] which entice you into expecting more than you get [good advertising on their part, but not for the disappointed viewer] also the fight scenes are speeded up so they have that jerky 'Jason and the Argonauts' classic skeleton scene feel to them, which spoils some good sequences, and the sound seems to be slightly out of phase in some scenes [lose another star].
As a piece of entertainment it certainly isn't as bad a many reviews make out, it's just very misleading in what it describes. Younger teenagers will probably find it an 'awesome' spectacle, older viewers will probably be looking for something more. Worth a view for less then £5 but I certainly wouldn't pay more than that for it. If that sounds good for you then you might like this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Clash of everything - tasteful 1 Jun 2011
By Tommy Dooley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is not a good film, however I am going to try to be objective. It is based on The Malay Chronicles from the 16th Century, which are pretty much myth and if you approach this as a sort of swords and sandals `Sinbad' then from certain viewer's points of view this may have some merit.

It supposedly tells the story of the uniting of the Han Chinese Empire and the Roman Empire of Hadrian, a Roman `Prince' is sent to marry a Chinese `Princess' and they are to meet in Malaysia via Goa, where the hapless Romans have to enlist the aid of a sea rover (Merong Mahawangsa) who claims to be descended from Alexander the Great. Once they get to this place of the `joining of empires' and a 'great trading centre'(a beach with a few bits of bamboo) where this ceremony is to take place, things start to go wrong.

If you have stuck with it thus far there is then a big fight, which is basically what this movie is selling itself as, a fight fest. I don't want to spoil the `plot' but needless to say after many, many plot holes there is some more fight scenes. I watched this with my nephew and one of his friends and they thought it was `awesome' etc. I begged to differ citing the historical, factual, material and language inaccuracies, all to no avail. That I think is the point, if you are prepared to suspend belief and forget even basic historical knowledge, then there is an average fight fest type of film trying to get out. The cover does mention the special effects as `stunning' well to have believed that you probably would needed to have been `stunned' possibly with a taser.

Also there really is not a `clash of empires'; more like a fight over some rock in the Pacific Ocean, so pretty much setting itself up for a fall straight away.
