Product Description

Gangs of spies. A royal secret service. A covert governing organization. A divine constabulary. Everyone wants to know about a stolen coin cast and a mysterious circulation of counterfeit currency. Every government agency and financial interest in the region has an interest and a plan. But this scam is only the beginning of their problems.
Something supernatural is happening. Someone is forming an army of the undead, created to crush anything that stands in their way, making their way to the capital.
Coldblood. Iron Hands. Emotionless. Life Snatcher.
They are kung fu superheroes. They are THE FOUR.
And they may be our only chance.
Based on the greatly-loved novel The Four Detective Guards by Wen Ruian, Gordon Chan’s (THE KING OF FIGHTERS, PAINTED SKIN, THE KUNG FU MASTER) film adaptation is the first for the big screen, and the beginning of a planned trilogy.

This movie is an unapologetic Wuxia film; swordsmanship, kung-fu, and magic on very side. It doesn't transcend the genera, but it is among the very best examples of it. Other reviewers have noted that there is some skimping on the character development, and that is true, but Wuxia is not a style that goes in for much character development beyond certain basic archetypes. Furthermore, as the Wikipedia entry on the film notes, the novels this film is based on have already been adapted to television several times, in Hong Kong, so the target audience already knows these people. We Westerners are just going to have to catch up.

If you are looking for historical accuracy, or realistic fighting, or shakespearean eloquence, then you have come to the wrong place. But if you are looking for top-flight fantasy fun, well shot, well acted, with thrilling fights and glorious special effects, then by no means pass this one up.

Was well worth watching. Effects are very well done and the acting was just as good.
For comparison sake I would have to say this movie is equal in production to movies such as "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon" and "The Forbidden Kingdom"... etc.
Though the fist half of the movie jumped right over character development(Lacked in good introduction), it did not take away from the overall experience.
Glad I took the chance with this one.. "thoroughly enjoyed it".

America has its fair share of superhero groups on the big screen. From the Avengers, Fanastic Four and the X-Men, in Asia, we have seen many films featuring people with supernatural powers. But what about an investigative team with supernatural powers?

This is the concept featured in Gordon Chan's ("The Medallion", "Fist of Legend", 2000 AD") and Janet Chun's ("All's Well Ends Well 2011″, "La Lingerie") film "The Four", the first film of a planned trilogy and a loose big screen adaptation of Wen Ruian's novel series "The Four Great Constables".

Featuring a cast with talent from mainland China and Hong Kong, the film stars Chao Deng ("Assembly", "Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame"), Yifei Liu ("The Assassins", "White Vengeance"), Ronald Cheng ("Fatal Contact", "Vulgaria"), Collin Chou ("The Matrix Revolutions", "The Matrix Reloaded", "The Forbidden Kingdom", "Fearless") and Anthony Wong Chau-Sang ("Infernal Affairs" films, "Ip Man: The Final Fight", "White Vengeance").

VIDEO:

"The Four" is presented in 1080p High Definition (2:20:1 aspect ratio). The film looks fantastic when it comes to close-up details but also its use of the spider-cam to really capture the sense of movement and blend in the wirework and CG elements wonderfully. Contrast is well-done, some scenes may be a tad too dark but for the most part, "The Four" looks very good on Blu-ray.

I personally didn't notice any banding or compression artifacts issues during my viewing of the film.

AUDIO & SUBTITLES:

"The Four" is presented in Mandarin 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. One thing I learned while watching this film is how amazing the film sounds in lossless and surround.

I liked the odd characters and the fusion of a martial arts, fantasy and a detective story. The only thing was that the picture quality wasn't great.

LOVE THE CONCEPT, PLOT AND STORY LINE. GOOD ARRAY OF CHARACTERS AND VERY GOOD FIGHT SCENES. VERY GOOD MIX OF MARTIAL ARTS, FANTASY AND MAGIC. I HAVEN'T SEEN MANY MOVIES WHERE THE DEAD ARE RESURRECTED TO FIGHT. ESPECIALLY LOVE THAT CONCEPT. AND IT'S NOT OVER THE TOP. DEFINITELY ONE OF MY FAVORITES.

Good movie. I liked the actions and the sappy love story. I wish it were dubbed in english. Having the read subtitles distracts from the movie a bit, but overall we enjoyed it.

Terrific martial arts movie with Asian mysticism woven in. Many Asian films/TV series imbue their heroes and villains with mystical, supernatural - some say, magical - powers in keeping with the Asian belief in that divine forces can rule Nature and change the course of history. The Emperor of the Song dynasty established Department Six, a secret police organization tasked to fight criminals. "The Four" of the film title refers to the Top Four Constables in Department Six who are each determined by their level of fighting skills and successful efforts. However, another royal mandate also created the "Divine Constabulary," a very secretive organization with royal authority and headed by one of China's nobles. Although battling the "bad guys," both secret police organizations are at odds and very competitive. There are several key members of each secret group and this may cause confusion in the beginning as to who's who in the cast; however, the battle lines soon become clear as the story unfolds. "The Four" showcases the martial arts and mystical powers of these secret forces battling the greedy, criminals of ancient China. Fun, Fast-paced, Must-See!
