Sadly, this DVD contains NO ENGLISH SUBTITLES!

Chen Kaige, director of China's only Cannes Palme d'Or winning film (Farewell My Concubine), has crafted a thrilling, emotional epic about a general attempting to wipe out the Zhao clan by killing its new-born heir and the heir's mother. But the new baby is protected and hidden by a doctor whose wife is also giving birth at the same time. I found this film to be highly emotional, thrilling, and even shocking as the country goes through a killing spree just to eliminate any chance that a Zhao member is left alive.

Mildly entertaining if you are REALLY into Chinese historical drama. Otherwise, it's a overly convoluted story, has dull script, some atrocious acting, and very unexciting action scenes.

Nice old tale about how a doctor was drawn into a palace revolt that resulted in the tragic murders of his wife and newborn son. The fast paced first half of the movie dealt with the murders and the more studied second half was on the doctor's 15 year quest of vengeance. (Available also on netflix ...)

Good sets, big actors but poor script doomed the movie.
