Warriors of Heaven and Earth


aka: Tian di ying xiong
China 2003, 120 minutes
Dir. He Ping
In Mandarin with English subtitles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Action/Adventure / Martial Arts, Epic


Aroview: A lavish post-CROUCHING TIGER epic derived from a Chinese folktale about an Imperial assassin who is sent forth to the Gobi desert to eliminate a mutinous warrior, in return for passage back to his native Japan.

Filmed in the monumental deserts of western China, this never skimps on grandeur, but does deliver a fairly predictable story of stone-faced heros, tested loyalties and supernatural artifacts. Bears the welcome influence of Sergio Leone and Akira Kurosawa.
