Format: Blu-ray
While those looking for wall to wall martial action would be better to look elsewhere, this film is best viewed by those familiar with the legends, heroes, and characters stemming from the Three Kingdoms novels and TV series and films like Red Cliff and Resurrection of the Dragon. The plot features appearances from several characters from those stories that would be familiar to readers (similar to say the Avengers-related cameos in several of the recent Marvel heroes films) and there are several enjoyable scenes that delve into explaining details of Yen's character's legend. Similar to many of the recent films and series revolving around the King Arthur/Round Table legends.

For those unfamiliar with the Three Kingdoms characters and stories, I can understand that there would be some confusion with the characters and their relationships with each other. This lack of a more in depth familiarity may diminish some enjoyment as Yen's terrific martial action scenes are sparsely distributed throughout the film. And while it's possible for an uninformed viewer to enjoy the film on it's historical action merits, they may not enjoy this work as much as the more relatable fare found in some of Yen's other recent films. It might be better to think of this film as a historical piece featuring some martial arts action than a martial arts film that takes place in ancient China, if that makes any sense.

Donnie Yen is the man these days with every director and producer clammering for the Yenster. The latest product of director Felix Chong and Alan Mak (director/writers of infernal Affairs Trilogy) is The Lost Bladesman. The story of the Three Kingdom and the unification of China under the rule of Cao Cao. The problem occurs from the very start of the film with little or no explanation about the current scenario, those unitiated with the Three Kingdom lore will be left in the dark. Intial skeptism about Yen playing the legendary Guan Yu can be put to rest. Though Yen being a little short compared to the mythcal legacy of Guan Yu, Yen embodies both charisma and composure. His acting is subtle and reserved compared to his more showy efforts of Flash point and Dragon Tiger Gate. But it is Jian Wen that gives a fantastic performance as the great Cao Cao, he conveys loyalty and intelligence with hints of deception with ease. His admiration for Guan Yu is more fleshed out compared the character of Guan Yu portrayed in this film.

Those watching a Donnie Yen film will expect top quality action. Depending on your expectations you may be a bit disappointed with this feature. In terms of quality Yen delivers some fantastic weapon work with some nice choreography but they lack the usual intensity usually associate with Donnie. The first major action between Andy On and Donnie Yen is nicely staged but lacks any real power. The next major action scene features Yen taking on various opponents but unfortunately a lot of the fight is clouded in dakrness making it hard sometimes to see the fluid action. Those sitting through the film expecting a final pay off will also be likely let down, for it is very anti climatic.

If you prefer your movies to have a story (I usually do), then you may want to give this one a miss. Maybe if you speak Chinese the story has more impact (sadly I don't speak Chinese). I think Donnie Yen is brilliant so I bought it because he was in it. The movie is apparently about a man/general/fighter who in the time of warring Kingdoms is very loyal to his own leader, but he's so good others either want to try to win his loyalty or kill him to stop him from helping their enemies. Most of the movie is the Bladesman trying to deliver this woman (whom he loves but who is promised to another man) from point A to B and he ends up having to kill lots of baddies in self-defence along the way. The fight scenes were amazing, the acting was good, the cinematography and costumes were lovely...but it just didn't have much of a story-spine. I don't know if I'll watch it again.

Some say this is one of Donnies most mediocre movies, but I disagree. I throughly enjoyed the movie throughout. The action sequences, although a little sparce for an action movie, were still very entertaining. If you enjoyed movies like The Three Kingdoms and Red Cliff (the full extended version not the seriously cut 2hr 30 odd minute version), then you'll love this excellent Donnie contribution.

I picked this up for less than £3 so couldn't complain even if it had been mediocre. I'm intending getting the Blu-Ray version just as soon as I've purchased several other titles first. :)

I was expecting more from this film it was at times very slow which was very disappointed it could have been so much better you can't blame the actor donnie yen tge blame must go to either the director or the fact that they have made so many films lately around the same subject. Don't get me wrong the scenery as usuall was amazing the acting really good the battle scenes good but it just had that feeling very slow sluggish it would have been better of being around 90 mins long a faster pace.
