7 Assassins is a new martial arts movie which is directed by Eric Tsang and Hung Yan Yan,
and also delivers a great cast which see Shaw brothers legends Kara Hui and Ti Lung back
on screen. From watching the trailer, i have to say it looks ok, you can see the wire work
right away and i am not sure if the money is a big budget, even with such a great cast.
But that aside, i shall be watching and hope to see a good movie.
Plot: When social unrest plagues a Kingdom in ancient China, the Imperial Court collects
stockpiles of gold from local governments to expand the royal army. However, the gold is
robbed while in transport. In a desperate move to retrieve the stolen treasure, elite
royal guards are sent on a mission to go after the gold but soon find out they are not the
only ones in pursuit of it.

@wulkyrie: Because they want to make money from the mainland Chinese market, where this copy probably leaked from.
@kthor: Many people incorrectly categorize all pre-Republic (before 1911) periods as "ancient China".

Lucky I can understand both Mandarin and Cantonese
But I prefer to listen to Cantonese for this movie.

Missed the top part where it says Language is Mandarin. Again, cannot understand why Hong Kong movie has mandarin dialogue.

Can someone tell me if the language is Cantonese or Mandarin? This is supposed to be a Hong Kong movie, but cannot understand why the subtitle is simplified Chinese.

My god the opposing forces at work here! My loathing for Eric Tsang and Michale Wong, VS my Love for Felix Wong and Hung Yan Yan. I wonder if I can edit the movie to take out all those horrible actors and still have enough of the movie left to watch? It's going to take me a month to decide whether or not to watch it and make my eyes bleed from seeing/hearing those vile actors.

"Plot: When social unrest plagues a Kingdom in ancient China"
hmmm i pretty sure i saw a modern early 20th century gun on the cover ... can that still be considered ancient china time?
