Three Kingdoms – Resurrection of The Dragon

Three Kingdoms – Resurrection of the Dragon

Among all the China Historical War, Three Kingdoms was one of my big time favourite. Most of the current wide use business tactic nowadays were revolutionized from what was being illustrated or used in this war. Cao Cao, Zhu-Ge Liang , Xu Ze, Zhou Yu etc. Also the common idol of those who enroll on the side business – Guan Yu. All were from this historical war. Being a Three Kingdom freak like me who never also miss any of Three Kingdoms PC game, would surely not miss the movie which is now showing in the cinema Three Kingdoms – Resurrection of The Dragon

The whole movie is actually about one of this hero during the Three Kingdoms moment – Zhao Zi-Loong (赵子龙) or with the short name Zhao Yun (赵云), my favourite hero as well. It summarize the whole carreer of him in Liu Bei’s army, from him joining the volunteer army as a nameless soldier (well..the fact he’s not under Liu Bei initially) until his day of sacrific bearing the name of one of the Five Dragon

One most historical battle which made him welknown was when he was on the journey to save Liu Bei’s infant son (really usless son), facing Cao cao’s pack of armies, slaying uncountable numbers of souls alone and eventually took the Green-Red Sword in hand from Cao Cao. Besides this heroic journey, history said that he never had lose a battle once of course with the help of the most inteligent advisor of Liu Bei army – Zhu-Ge Liang

However, his life was ended on his last battle against Cao Cao’s granddaugher Cao Ying as his old best friend Luo Ping An (don’t remember this fella on the real story though) betrayed him that leads to his defeat.

3 main characters

Andy Lau as Zhao Zi-Loong

Maggie Q as Cao Ying

Samuel Hung as Luo Ping An

My advise is if u don’t know anything about the war of the Three Kingdom, is better that u don’t watch it as i am very very sure that u will be very confuse and don’t know what’s going on for that very 2 hours in the cinema. It is really a summarize of the whole story of him in the army. Plus, it’s the same goes to those who don’t understand and read chinese.

As because i personally don’t like movies which are a summarize of everything, and the fighting/battle scene was really not good, guess maybe budget constraint, i give a 4/10.

Later on this year there will be another movie on one of the most welknown battle scene in Three Kingdom – Red Cliff, strong class of casts as well as it’s by the famous director John Woo, very looking forward on this
