A massive success this year in its native China, Dragon Blade brings action spectacle on a grand scale. Featuring an international cast led by Jackie Chan, John Cusack and Academy Award winner Adrien Brody, the film features the fight for the Silk Road when East and West collide.
When corrupt Roman leader Tiberius (Adrien Brody) arrives with a giant army to claim the Silk Road, Huo An (Jackie Chan) and his group of trained warriors teams up with an elite legion of defected Roman soldiers led by General Lucius (John Cusack) to maintain the delicate balance of power in the region.
To protect his country and his new friends, Huo An gathers the warriors of thirty-six ethnic nations together to fight Tiberius in an incredible epic battle. The film is written and directed by Daniel Lee (Black Mask) and produced by Jackie Chan and Susanna Tsang.
Dragon Blade is released in the US on September 4th, but has yet to get a UK date. It didn’t work for me, based on what’s on display but it’s not quite my bag. Fans of Mr Cusack will no doubt relish his appearance 😉
