14 Blades Synopsis

Trained in clandestine combat from childhood, the Jinyiwei were masters of the 14 Blades; eight being for torture, five for killing, and the last blade reserved for suicide when a mission failed. An elite force of secret agents with a license to kill, the Jinyiwei devoted their lives and lethal prowess to the service of the Emperor alone. When the Imperial Court is taken over by evil eunuch Jia (Law Kar Ying), the best of the Jinyiwei, Qinglong (Donnie Yen) is assigned to steal a list identifying those still loyal to the Emperor. However unbeknownst to Qinglong, the Jinyiwei have fallen under the control of Jia, and during the mission Qinglong is betrayed and barely escapes with his life. Now as the most wanted man in the land, Qinglong must seek out and rally the loyalists to rise against Jia and restore the Emperor to power. In his way are the deadliest assassins in the land, his former brethren, the Jinyiwei.

14 Blades is about sword fights Chinese style. Those incredible flying blade masters and of course there is a lot of martial arts, gore, destruction, torture and suicide. It also speaks of blind devotion to an incompetent Emperor of a corrupt government during the Ming Dynasty. A rebel name Jia with the help of a leg-less Quing, toppled him from power but the Jinyewei, the Emperor’s secret police fight back to bring back to power.  Very Chinese and partly stereotypical but the ancient setting makes it unique. I love the fight sequences and it is about time that the world gave attention to Chinese martial arts movies.
