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.

I frist saw it on Youtube. I like the story. I grew up watching this type of movie. It is based on a book. The movie was well made. The price is good as well.

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".

My nonexistent ability to understand the Chinese language didn't hurt my enjoyment of this film. The mystery was a bit complex, but the action was nearly nonstop. The subtitles made sense in most cases, although I might have preferred good dubbing. There is just the right amount of comic relief that seems to be present in most recent action movies. That may help save the film from being gratuitously gory. Overall pretty good balance between the main characters.

I went into this movie expecting to see lots of bad guys get punched in the face, and I was not disappointed. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by how attractive the cast was and how cute the puppy was. Those are, in fact, the three reasons to see this movie: you want to see zombies get kicked in the face until their heads explode, you think the cast is hot, or you like adorable puppies. Otherwise, don't expect a cinematic masterpiece.

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.

Great martial arts but strange storyline that for me was difficult to follow...so I haven't watched it all the way through that's how kinda boring it is for me...but I'm going to keep trying to watch it and finish it.

However, the subtitles went so fast you could not read them and follow what was going on, I was constantly using my pause button, otherwise the was great, the costumes and effects, fantastic, but I could not follow alot of it due to subtitles going so fast
