Empire Of Assassins (2011/Lionsgate DVD)


Picture: C+     Sound: B-     Extras: D     Feature: C+



After the murder of his family, one man seeks justice and vengeance against the royal family, but turns out he must face is his long lost brother, now two brothers unknown to each other must fight to the death.  As fate separated them long ago, they are united once again as the truth begins to surface can he fight his own flesh and blood?  This is Min Tse in Empire Of Assassins.
A lone martial artist wishes to kill the Emperor who ordered the assassination of his family long ago.  Standing between him and the Emperor is his army and his general, unfortunately the Emperor's general is actually his brother, not to mention the Emperor's daughter, the princess is in love with him.  Now caught between his desire for revenge, finding his long lost brother and for the princess that loves him, can he take his revenge?
This was film was just one fight scene after another.  While the actors, costume, setting and kung-fu were all decent, it just seemed like they took a Chinese kung-fu soap opera, took all the major fight scenes and rolled it into one single movie.  Forget the story or even the character development, if you just want to watch martial arts fighting with no plot then this film is for you.
