Action-movie great Gordon Chan (Beast Cops, Fist of Legend) has directed yet another exhilarating epic. In the 16th century, Japanese pirates have swarmed the Chinese coastline and taken over the cities of Cengang and Zhejiang. After months of fighting to reclaim territory, Commander Yu (martial-arts megastar Sammo Hung, Magnificent Butcher), General Qi (Vincent Zhao, True Legend), and their army succeed. However, the pirates find a way to escape, resulting in an ongoing battle of blockbuster proportions. Hong Kong filmmaker Gordon Chan is acclaimed for his mastery of the action genre, and God of War further proves he deserves to be. With larger-than-life effects, a dramatic score, and a story that keeps the audience in a constant state of anticipation, the film simply feels huge―a hallmark of all great action films. Chan's latest film won't disappoint and its production values rival, if not exceed, that of most Hollywood hits. It is a film so enormous that it doesn’t just keep your attention, it demands it.
