“Splendidly shot and styled… duels choreographed with balletic grace… solid fighting” Hollywood Reporter
A story of honor, love and revenge set against the backdrop of the Chinese opera during its heyday in 1920s Shanghai, MY KINGDOM centers on two sworn brothers and their quest to regain their master’s honor. After years spent training in martial arts, Guan Yilong (Wu Chun, 14 Blades) and Meng Erkui (Han Geng, Beginning of the Great Revival) pursue revenge and quickly succeed, establishing themselves as the newest sensations of the Shanghai opera scene. They experience fame and love with a beautiful actress, Xi Mulan (Barbie Hsu, Future X-Cops), but soon their collective pasts catch up with them and all three are tangled in a complex web of love, lust, deceit and betrayal.
Directed by Gao Xiaosong (Rainbow), with action scenes choreographed by Sammo Hung (IP Man 2), MY KINGDOM blends martial arts with a suspense-filled love story that “augments the genre’s typically thrill-packing action sequences by upgrading them to eye-popping ‘opera battles’” (Slant Magazine).
