I'm not giving the plot away when I say that his mantra as squad leader to a group of assassins was that one day he would die and he has accepted that as his faith. Well the ending of the movie shocked the daylights out of me. Throughout the movie, because he has been falsely accused and stripped of his rank and sentenced to death, he escapes death, and as a result the league of assassins from the emperor are out to end his life, and thus, the story revolves around their inability to do and his trying to clear his name. There is a very skillful female assassin who is the daughter of the emperor and she comes very closes to success in her attempts to kill him. With this in mind the ending is shocking and brilliant and could not have ending any other way for eternity to be satisfied. I was surprised it was pretty good for a period piece. They really do a really great job all round with the putting this movie together. Maximum martial arts yet, there appeared to me to be no sloppiness, no haphazard oh that could never happen stuff. Saying that, there is some flying and gravity defying movements but I found them all enjoyable and fun to watch. So get it if you like historic martial arts and Donnie Yen. you can't go wrong he works really hard to give you a good movie.
