The Hong Kong martial arts action flick - which stars Sean Lau, Louis Koo and Eddie Peng - is set in a civil war-ridden China.

It is about a group of villagers attempting to deliver justice and end the tyrannical reign of a cruel young warlord.

It opens here tomorrow and is rated NC16.

The 54-year-old film-maker said at a press conference in Beijing: "As a child, I always hid inside a blanket and used a flashlight (at night) to read martial arts books by Louis Cha."
