Editorial Reviews

In 228 AD, a time when China was plagued by constant war and divided among three kingdoms, a hero arose. Zhao Zilong was a common man who ascended from humble roots to become commander of the army charged with liberating the land from an evil warlord. He led numerous battles of strength and wit, but now he must fight against the impossible to defy the fate of his nation.

Review of the Uncut HK version.

Amid the beloved historical epic tales of the "Battle or Romance of the Three Kingdoms", arose three movies in 2008. The very mediocre "Empress and the Warriors" with Donnie Yen, and late last year came the first chapter of John Woo's "Red Cliff". Daniel Lee's (Dragon Squad) "Three Kingdoms: Resurrection of the Dragon" was released a few months earlier in Asia than Woo's star-studded film (which I will review later), and has Hong Kong's Andy Lau (Running on Karma) in the lead as the famous General Zhao Zhilong--yes the same guy in the video game named Zhao Yun in "Dynasty Warriors". The film has massive commercial appeal, and the film is beautifully shot. However, purists of the tales of the Three Kingdoms will be annoyed and repulsed, as the film does feel a little empty in regards to an intricate storyline and full of historical inaccuracies. (Hint: John Woo's overly exaggerated film about the three kingdoms isn't much better)

228 A.D, before the rise of the Jin Dynasty. The kingdoms of Shu, Wei and Wu are divided. Zhilong (Andy Lau) is a simple soldier from Changsan who becomes a legendary warrior under the employ of Liu (Yueh Huah) who rises from the ranks of the Shu forces to become one of the "Five Tiger Generals". Zhilong becomes famous for his many campaigns against Cao and the last surviving general of the "Five Tigers". Now, after many years of war, Zhilong is set to make his last stand against Cho's granddaughter--who has become a beautiful, cold and stoic warrior woman; Cao Ling (Maggie Q, Live Free and Die Hard).

The film is narrated by Pingan (Sammo Hung), Zhilong's oldest friend who joined the Liu army with him many years ago.

For those unfamiliar, 'Romance of the Three Kingdoms' is one of the four pillars of Chinese literature. It's a massive and rich piece of work spanning over a hundred years of turbulent history, and making a single movie out of it is no easy task.

The directors of Resurrection of the Dragon choose to center the story around one of the greatest generals of the day: Zhao Yun "Zilong". Unfortunately, they botch his background, don't bother telling his actual story, and decide to fit everything in a measly 100 minutes. A note here: you may want to check out Red Cliff , which is another Three Kingdoms movie but actually has a sense of scope.

What 'Dragon' does is rush at breakneck pace through a couple (well, one, really) of the important military accomplishments in Zilong's career, before spinning headfirst into pure fantasy and making an embarrassingly half-hearted attempt at being "deep". Ouch! This is a richer and more complex legend than to have to rely on hackneyed Hollywood formulas.

Exhibit A: Cao Ying. I'm positively baffled that with as many well-known heroes and villains as 'Romance' provides, the scriptwriters felt a need to create one of their own. Ying is the daughter of the enemy king Cao Cao, who looks like a delicate princess but packs a lethal punch. (What a novel character concept?...) Additionally, I can not accept that a cheaply fabricated character such as Ying manages to outsmart Zhuge Liang, the most brilliant military strategist of his time, as easily as she does. A cookie-cutter role with no depth and ridiculous powers? You've got to make the villains compelling!

Exhibit B: the pudgy Luo Pingan, the story's narrator.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad DVD Quality - Looks like pirating from Theater September 6, 2008
By Y. Ho
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I ordered this DVD from Amazon. Paid over $20 more dollar. The quality of the DVD BOX and DVD Disk print are blurt that it actually looks like pirate DVD. When I look at the DVD movie, there are frame that has some strange object on the screen. It made me think that this DVD was duplicated by filming the movie in the theater.

There are two things I don't like about this movie.

1. There are many major details that are not true to history. Fitstly, Zi Long or Zhao Yun did not die in the battle. He died of old age (1). Secondly, at the battle of Chanban, Liu Bei's wife, Lady Gan was not killed. She's rescued by Zhao Yun. Thirdly, Zhao Yun never fought with Cao Cao's niece according to history!

You can verify all the details by visiting wikipedia dot org. Sorry, I can't embed the link here. It seems Amazon is blocking that feature. If you find any other reliable website talking about the 3 kingdoms period in China, please put that information here. I'd appreciate that.

2. The acting and directing are not engaging as in other movies of the same genes such as the Warlords. The fighting scenes are so so but they're not good as the ones in the Warlords either.

3.0 out of 5 stars Surface scratcher July 20, 2008
Format:DVD
Plot seems fractured and it just doesn't flow, probably as it jumps through time too quickly and because of this you cannot get indepth with the characters and story. Mainly I think this is because the film is too short, it almost needs to be a trilogy! There is not enough time in the film to get to know all the different characters and feel for them through their struggles. Even the relationships between the characters during the film are so short it makes their own emotions seem fake. I really thought it had potential and I got right into it at the start...but once he becomes 'old' it rushes through too much to feel as though you can get indepth in the film on all levels...I felt it just scratches the surface of what seems a wonderful story. Awesome fight scenes make up for it though and I still enjoyed it, but left wanted more. Subtitles move to quickly unfortunately.
