God Of War is a pretty solid period war/action movie from directorGordon Chan(who directed some of my favorite movies, Fist Of Legend andBeast Cops). This is probably the best acting performance to date fromleading man Wenzhuo aka Vincent Zhao. He is brilliant in the fightscenes and there is quite a bit of battle action to go around in thispicture. The choreographed action looks great and is very fluent, butcomplex. The film also looks very sharp and has good characterdevelopment and pacing. Sammo Hung appears only briefly, but has amemorable cameo and good chemistry with leading man Wenzhuo Zhao. Thelegendary Yasuaki Kurata gives a powerful performance as Japanesegeneral and gives a lot of empathy and insight to the Japanese side ofthis historical conflict. This film has elements of Red Cliff andWarlords, but most reminds me of Korean movie The Admiral RoaringTides. All above are quality productions and highly recommended and Iam very impressed by this excellent film.

There are no less than six production company intros before God of Warhas even begun, giving an idea of the amount of money and co-operationnecessary to make this film possible. Fortunately, they come togetherto pull off some of the most impressive battle sequences seen thisdecade. Unfortunately, God of War has similar pitfalls to other filmsof this genre and blockbuster Chinese films in general; a distinct lackof human engagement.<br><br>The year is 1557. A Japanese invasion force made up of trained samuraiand bloodthirsty mercenaries have taken the Chinese coastal town ofCengang. After his previous success against such &#x27;pirates&#x27;, it befallsthe renowned General Qi (Wenzhuo Zhao) to finish the siege and purgethis great force from China for good.<br><br>What could have been outright propaganda, rapacious Japanese againstthe noble Chinese, is actually a somewhat layered film with establishedcharacters and motives on both sides of the fight. The respect of thefilmmakers passes down to the leads, the rivalry of Qi and CommanderKumasawa (Yasuaki Kurata) reminiscent of Jack Aubrey (Russell Crowe)and his French adversary in Master and Commander.<br><br>God of War is attentive to a fault when it comes to historicalauthenticity, a middle section bloated by talk of an internal Chinesepolitics that never impacts the narrative at large. An early element ofthe plot is a Japanese general imprisoned on the Chinese mainland; thisisn&#x27;t followed up on as the plot progresses.<br><br>As a lead, Qi is a cipher. The audience never really feels hisirritation at the Chinese higher command, nor at the sacrifices he andhis men must make for victory. Great effort is made to mourn charactersthinly established.<br><br>The most enjoyment I had with any of the characters was Lady Qi (ReginaWan). While at first her subplot feels as if it is going through themotions to justify a female lead, as the film progresses and shebecomes more integral she is a joy to watch, asserting herself bothagainst her husband and the Japanese invaders.<br><br>Where the film really stands out is not in character development but inits set-pieces. The film opens with a visceral attempt to lift a siege,and every battle henceforth is an escalation. Gunpowder (a Chineseinvention) explodes across the screen. Even in the heat of battle,director Gordon Chan can focus on visual flourishes as tiny as thetwist of a spear. A minor point is that the definition of the Japanesearmy is &#x27;pirates&#x27;, which makes me wish there had been a little bit moreplundering and naval warfare.<br><br>The film makes a success of its martial arts sequences, hand to handcombat deftly interwoven with the clashing of armies. The highlight iswhen Qi faces off against a miner in order to secure his service, in asequence that comes closest to any social subtext in the film.<br><br>God of War is the sort of film the Politburo loves to see, aspectacular and historic representation of an ascendant China. It&#x27;salso far more watchable and authentic than this year&#x27;s mess, The GreatWall. Alas, God of War stands as more a film of spectacle thansubstance, and while enjoyable at times may not linger in the memory.The wait for Chinese films that can combine Sixth-Generation characterstudy with state-approved high production budgets continues.<br><br>@BrianInvincible christophermarchant.wordpress.com

All four stars for only, ONLY introducing Qi Jiguang to people whoaren&#x27;t aware of him. While I&#x27;m sure that&#x27;s most people, this &#x22;film&#x22; isalso a massive disservice to an amazing warrior.<br><br>I realize Chinese film is notorious for putting a Chinese favouredtwist on events, but this leaves the border of ludicrous far behind. Toclarify, I don&#x27;t mind wire stunts (i recall only one in this), I knowwhat the symbolism is. That kind of ludicrous can&#x27;t touch this. As ifthat weren&#x27;t enough, plot holes and ridiculous logistics (they can&#x27;teven keep the numbers straight) totally ruined any chance of me likingthis movie even a little, I had to force myself to watch it to the end.<br><br>To add insult to injury, Sammo is barely in it, which feels likerobbery - but maybe he saw what was going on and ran for the hills... Isure would have.
