4.0 out of 5 stars FREEDOM, SIGNING, OR DEATH,
This is a basic martial arts fight film with a unorthodox background that we have to read at the opening. Japan created a Hades death cult. They would kidnap/buy children from around the world and train them to fight. The object was to spread the spirit of Hades through fighting, killing the spirit of their enemy, in this case China.

This is a basic martial arts fight film with a unorthodox background that we have to read at the opening. Japan created a Hades death cult. They would kidnap/buy children from around the world and train them to fight. The object was to spread the spirit of Hades through fighting, killing the spirit of their enemy, in this case China.

The group was disbanded and then ordered to rebuild after 12 years because China was tough to conquer. They managed to gather together. There is a female journalist (Yamei Zhang) who covers them and gives us a speech on integrity in reporting. There is a group of Allied POWs captured in Burma, who employ some American actors. We quickly discover three of the prisoners were former cult members.

Our main protagonist is former member K-29 (Yu Xing) who became a Sholin Buddhist, a habitual good guy in Chinese films. He is there to save everyone but must compete in three lengthy formulaic slo-mo/ fast speed fights. My favorite was the one against Crazy Monkey (Heon Jun Nam) who looked like he escaped from a "Juon" film.

The final fight is depicted on the cover. Like "Kill Bill" there is a move called the "seventeen seconds of death." Did K-29 master it? When will he possibly use it if he did? Okay, this wasn't a mystery, but the film has some minor twists.

Vajra is associated with the diamond and thunderbolts. It is powerful, hard, and indestructible.

The film is four stars on the Chines martial arts scale.

No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Plenty of violence with several bloody scenes. Faces being hit in slow motion, showing the skin flowing. No silly anti-gravity fighting.
