Movie Review: Assasins and Bodyguards (3.5*)

We watched this at home last weekend because it won many awards. The plot revolves around Dr Sun Yat Sen's supporters and the Qing soldiers trying to stop him. Set in colonial Hong Kong, there is a clash of the Qing soldiers, British forces and underground Sun supporters. It's a war between the Qing assasins and Sun supporters who are the bodyguards.

Starring Donnie Yen, Tony Leung, Nicholas Tse, Leon Lai, Eric Tsang and Hu Jun.

I felt engaged and enjoyed the plot and fight scenes but the ending is very tragic. die, die, die, everyone dies. in hokkien it's "long chong see gah liao".

so tragic...
