Editorial Reviews

The mighty, warring forces of Rome, China, and Malaysia collide in this unforgettable, action-packed epic. In 120 AD, a warrior and descendant of Alexander the Great named Merong is tasked with accompanying a Roman prince through the dangerous regions of Asia ruled by the expanding Han Dynasty. Their destination: a beautiful princess whose kidnapping sets them on a course that will alter the fate of the entire world. Spectacular, lavish, and emotional in the tradition of Spartacus: Blood and Sand, this pulse-pounding mixture of sweeping adventure and relentless martial arts will take you to the dawn of our modern civilization.

Format:Blu-ray
First off, I have seen and heard a few people criticize "Clash of Empires" for its historical inaccuracies and its anachronistic language. While both are valid points, I don't think anyone is approaching this slight adventure for groundbreaking realism. This plays very much like an old-fashioned Saturday morning serial with amateur theatrics, modern sensibilities, magic and mysticism, chaste romance, and overwrought fighting mayhem. The movie really misses the mark by branding itself with an R rating, because it truly feels like a kiddie flick. Why the harsh rating? CGI blood. It is silly and cheesy with few ambitions beyond being silly and cheesy. And yet, even on scaling back my expectations and realizing the true intent behind the narrative--I still didn't particularly think it was successful. I suppose if you can switch off your thinking cap, there are some small pleasures to be had here--I giggled once or twice at the sheer inanity. But if you're looking for a solid adult action entertainment, something with a bit more resonance, there are far better choices available.

I'm not going to spend too much time on the plot, but I will opine that the movie's title is a bit of a misnomer. There are really no empires clashing here, quite the contrary. A Roman prince is betrothed to a Chinese princess for political reasons and their wedding is to take place in Malaysia. Along the way to the nuptials, the Romans pick up a prisoner (who happens to be of royal descent, naturally) to assist them as a guide and everyone chats it up like they were good old friends with no cultural, social, economic, or language barriers of consequence. On arriving at their destination, both camps (Chinese and Roman) are besieged by the native warlord (with powers of sorcery) and the princess is captured. Next up?

2.0 out of 5 stars Clash of everything - tasteful June 1, 2011
Format:DVD
This is not a good film, however I am going to try to be objective. It is based on The Malay Chronicles from the 16th Century, which are pretty much myth and if you approach this as a sort of swords and sandals `Sinbad' then from certain viewer's points of view this may have some merit.

It supposedly tells the story of the uniting of the Han Chinese Empire and the Roman Empire of Hadrian, a Roman `Prince' is sent to marry a Chinese `Princess' and they are to meet in Malaysia via Goa, where the hapless Romans have to enlist the aid of a sea rover (Merong Mahawangsa) who claims to be descended from Alexander the Great. Once they get to this place of the `joining of empires' (a beach with a few bits of bamboo) where this ceremony is to take place, things go wrong.

If you have stuck with it thus far there is then a big fight, which is basically what this movie is selling itself as, a fight fest. I don't want to spoil the `plot' but needless to say after many, many plot holes there is some more fight scenes. I watched this with my nephew and one of his friends and they thought it was `awesome' etc. I begged to differ citing the historical, factual, material and language inaccuracies, all to no avail. That I think is the point, if you are prepared to suspend belief and forget even basic historical knowledge, then there is an average fight fest type of film trying to get out. The cover does mention the special effects as `stunning' well to have believed that you probably would needed to have been `stunned' possibly with a taser.

Also there really is not a `clash of empires'; more like a fight over some rock in the Pacific Ocean, so pretty much setting itself up for a fall straight away.
