Editorial Reviews

Martial Arts Action In A WWII Setting

This epic tale of revenge combines the best aspects of martial arts and war movies. Screened at the Cannes Film Festival, this film is a great blend of history and kick a*s action. The fight between our heroine and the Japanese officer's killer-geishas is not to be missed.

The Resistance The Resistance

This movie is a perfect combination of martial arts and WW2 movies, it has more than I expected.

The plot is about the Japanese occupation of China 1940. The city of Sichen is in control of a Japanese General Takeshi (Li Zhang). The Japanese army is brutally murdering the Chinese people and the atrocities committed against the Chinese women are especially barbaric, until one day a Black Dress Killer arrive to the town, and kill over 1,500 soldiers and is systematically working his way to the Japanese General. The Black Dress Killer is a woman named Xiaoyun (Serena Hu or Hu Sang) who lost her family during General Takeshis occupation of her village and now she seek vengeance against the General. Meanwhile a Resistance leader Chen (Zhao Jun Long) failed to save a friend from Japanese prison but save unexpected an American Journalist named Steven (Jeremy Williams) and now Chen and Xiaoyun must now find a way to take the Journalist back to America. Meanwhile the General get a visit from a German Nazi Schultz (Johan Karlberg) and now it's obvious what the General must do.... Find the Black Dress Killer at all cost!

What I love about this movie I all the combination it has of all different type of movies and yet it work so well

1st is the action, its none stop, the Japanese ninjas are fast and deadly, the Resistance team are brave and ready to die for their country, The Black Dress Killer is very mystical like a demon who will make the Japanese soldiers pay for their sin....

I watched this on stream and was so moved I felt I had to warn others. The synopsis given on IMDB was clearly what the film makers intended us to see, but the actual result is quite something else. This is supposed to be in the aftermath of the `Rape of Nanking' see `City of Life and Death' for an excellent portrayal of that part of shameful history. This is about `one man' who stands up to fight the entire Imperial Japanese Army and of an American journalist who wants to bring the world the truth. The thing is this is set in some village (well its only got one street by the looks of things) called The City of Sichen in 1940 some three years after Nanking.

A mystery resistance fighter called `The Black Dress Killer' presumably because `he' wears black and kills people. Well he is going around beheading the Japanese in a CGI blood splatter fest. Meanwhile the card board cut out nasty General decides he will kill absolutely everybody unless he is told who this killer is. This then descends into one of those martial arts type films where everyone does that flying on wire fisty cuffs or a drawn out sword fight together with 1970's Kung Fu sound effects.

The music is martial too which would be ok but the drums are almost a constant and very in your face or ears I should probably say. The CGI is amongst the worst I have ever seen and is quite unnecessary as it is used for rain; that is rain that falls so slow it defies gravity, and flames that look like a second generation video game graphic. This work is so poor it is akin to childrens' fridge `art' that the parents feel have to go somewhere so stick it in the kitchen. The acting is universally lamentable, with some actors just shouting in a vain pretence at emotion.

Zhang Li Peng is a Genuine Shaolin Kung Fu Master with Extrodinary Skills. This Movie showcases his emerging talents as an actor. I only wished that more of his Kung Fu talents were exhibited in this movie. Its well worth purchasing for the entertainment value as well as the collectors value. Li Peng will be a big star in the near future and you can own what will become his earlier work. Also see Man from Shaolin.

Severe disappointment. I looked for that movie for three years and was do excited when I found it on Amazon . We watched about 15 minutes of the movie and threw it in the garbage. This had the worst, cheesiest acting I have ever seen in a movie.

I can fully recommend this movie. It captured and held my attention. Decent fight scenes with a twist at the end.
