Dragon Blade - "Powers are conceited which reveals our limitations."

A Daniel Lee movie, starring Jackie Chan with his inexplicable and entertaining modern Kung Fu. The film is set during the era of the Han Dynasty. Huo An (Chan), a hun, serves as a commander of the Protection Squad of the Western Regions of the Han Dynasty. The group is tasked by the emperor to maintain stability between the warring 36 nations in the Silk Road region. The path is indeed a tedious one, but Chan's subtle and elegant humour always finds its way through. This movie is rather a breakthrough to that dream of all 'races' living in harmony. The child, Publius (Jozef Waite), the Roman Prince, becomes a reminder of the untouched innocence which gradually is exposed to corruption, but the fire of innocence is too powerful to be extinguished; and the story gets a new turn. The movie bears a nice way of retelling history, and 'the truth' becomes nothing more than just another interpretation. 'Dragon Blade', suiting the Chinese title, yet a name apart is worthy of its efforts. I would personally give this movie a rating of 4.75 on a scale of 5.0.
