L.O.R.D: Legend Of Ravaging Dynasties (PG13)
Boasting dazzling computer animation and motion-capture technology, adventure fantasy epic L.O.R.D: Legend of Ravaging Dynasties is a visual feat for the Chinese movie industry.
Domineering figures called Soul Masters rule the earth in the mystical Odin Mainland, a vast territory divided into four counties.
The most powerful seven of these Soul Masters, known as Noble Lords, have disciples to assist them in their conquests.
Naive village boy Qi Ling (Chen Xuedong) is taken in by the unflappable Yin Chen (Kris Wu) as his disciple. Meanwhile, Yin Chen and the beautiful Guishan Lian Quan (Fan Bingbing) become embroiled in a battle of powers.
While the film is visually stunning, audiences might get confused by its pretentious, convoluted mess of a plot.
