Great movie! Dialog was quick so I had to pause to read all subtitles but I felt it was worth it. I highly recommend this movie for anyone wanting to understand the ancient Chinese developments. I'd definitely watch it again!

I was super excited to check out the Chinese epic "The Warring States" as it tells an incredible and fascinating historical tale. I love this genre of film and there have been some truly masterful examples to come from Chinese filmmakers. However, despite having a rich and complicated tale to tell, director Jin Chen seems unsure of just what movie he wanted to make. After a terrifically staged opening battle sequence, I settled in for a dynamic and dramatic movie--but the tone of "The Warring States" shifts all over the place and undermines the power inherent in this true life legend. There are elements of slapstick comedy, special effects laden adventure, political intrigue drama, frothy romance, and tragedy interwoven into the film's screenplay. And quite frankly, some of these many factions seem at war with one another. I never could take this picture very seriously despite its sometimes harrowing subject matter, and that was a real disappointment. Instead of a sweeping and memorable epic, it ends up being a jumble of conflicting styles and ideas.

The film chronicles the brotherhood and rivalry between two notable military strategists during China's Warring States Period. Through the course of the film, you know that the two will eventually meet on the battlefield as betrayal and political machinations divide the land. The film's lead is Sun Hong-Lei (portraying Sun Bin) who is painted throughout the film's first half as a wise buffoon. This was perhaps the most disconcerting aspect of the film as it struggled for a strangely comic tone. Sun Bin meets an indestructible female general (literally she battles dozens of men on her own and emerges victorious every time) and the two forge a working relationship and an ill-conceived romance.
