Plot Outline:

During the Qing Dynasty, Emperor Yong Zheng establishes a secret assassination squad - the Guillotines - who he sets after anyone who opposes him. When Qian Long ascends to power, and brings Western ideas and technology to the court, the group who once found much favor are deemed expendable and sent on a dangerous mission to the Han Chinese region to suppress all uprisings. -- Chris Kavan

Rating of
2.5/4 

Although the story is familiar (traditional way vs. uncaring "Western" advances) - at least he characters are interesting. Plus those flying guillotine weapons are pretty amazing (hopefully you don't have an issue with decapitation). The CG gets in the way sometimes but if you like these kind of action films, it's a good choice.
