Tsui Hark proved he was back on form with ‘Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame’ and with his latest martial arts film - Starring Jet-Li - Flying Swords of Dragon Gate keeps that momentum going, in 3D! Revisiting the film ‘Dragon Inn’ he produced two decades earlier (itself a remake of the 1967 King Hu wuxia classic), Flying Swords has a revamped story, massively upscale production values and its out now to buy on English subbed DVD and Blu.
Synopsis: During the Ming Dynasty, China was practically ruled by evil eunuchs. In a mission to rescue persecuted officials, righteous swordsman Zhao Huai'an (Jet Li) assassinates the vicious East Chamber commander Wan Yulou (Gordon Liu), thus making himself the prime target of the West Chamber overlord Yu Huatian (Aloys Chen). Zhao and company flee to the vast, sprawling desert on the frontier, and seek refuge at the infamous Dragon Gate Inn, which was rebuilt after being burned down in a blaze three years ago. There, the fugitives come head-to-head with a variety of mysterious figures - swordswoman Ling Yanqiu (Zhou Xun), hunted palace maid Su Huirong (Mavis Fan), a deadly tribal princess (Guey Lun Mei), a pair of bandits (Chris Lee and Aloys Chen), and secret agents from the West Chamber. When Yu Huatian and his henchmen track them down to the inn, everyone's fate will be decided in an earth-shattering showdown amidst the all-devouring sandstorm...
