Synopsis

This historic martial arts film adapted from the tale of Guan Yu crossing 5 passes and slaying six generals in Luo Guanzhong’s historic novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms. In AD 200 at some point of the overdue Eastern Han Dynasty, Cao Cao removes his political fighters Dong Cheng and others, before turning his attention in the direction of rival warlords Liu Bei and Yuan Shao. To keep away from combating a war on two fronts, Cao Cao decides to attack Liu Bei first. Liu Bei flees north to join Yuan Shao, whilst his own family is captured by way of the enemy. Liu Bei’s sworn brother Guan Yu (Donnie Yen), surrenders to Cao Cao to uphold his oath of brotherhood and keep his honor. Cao Cao knows he’s a remarkable warrior & hopes that Guan Yu will keep serving him. Meanwhile, Guan Yu is secretly in love together with his sworn brother’s concubine Qilan, but is afraid to express his emotions to her. Qilan reproaches Guan Yu for serving Cao Cao. By then, Guan Yu has also acquired information of Liu Bei’s whereabouts, so he prepares to leave Cao Cao to supply Liu Bei’s fiancé, Qilan, to him. Cao Cao is not able to prevent Guan Yu and offers orders for the defending generals on the various passes to let Guan Yu through. Despite so, Cao Cao’s followers sense that Guan Yu becomes a hazard to them if he succeeds in escaping, so that they plot to have Guan killed. Guan Yu then embarks on a dangerous long adventure thru the passes to reunite with Liu Bei. tt1648093
