Set in the midst of war and political upheaval during the Taiping Rebellion of the 1860s, General Pang barely survives a brutal massacre of his fellow soldiers by playing dead, and joins a band of bandits led by Er Hu and Wu Yang. After fighting back attackers from an helpless village, the three men take an oath to become "blood brothers," pledging loyalty to one another until death, but things quickly turn sour and the three men become embroiled in a web of political deceit, and a love triangle between Pang, Er Hu and a beautiful courtesan.
The Warlords was directed by Peter Chan and stars Jet Li, Andy Lau, Takeshi Kaneshiro, and Xu Jinglei.
It comes out in a limited run this coming Friday, April 2nd. You can also check it out on VOD, Amazon, and XBox Live right now!
