That's actually sound pretty cool.

I also demand Gladiators x Werewolves to be a thing.

Actually a film about Sino-Roman contacts (or at least a documentary) if historical accurate would be very nice to watch.

Sadly, its a Jackie Chan moving so it won't be accurate at all.

Some chinese slaves had been discovered in Italy dating from the roman times.... Where could have those come from?

Ambassador or slave? East Asian skeleton discovered in Vagnari Roman Cemetery - History - Life and Style - The Independent


Anyway this is one another of the usual "historically" labelled protomovies made in China that bear more resemblance to fantasy than anything historical.

I am sure we will see roman legions slaughtered by the thousands with kungfu ( that didn't even exhist) martial artists flying around and sending romans in air in asterix style.

One another of those propagandalike movies on chinese superpowers.

Probably we will see the unexhisting Ming great wall , the neverwhere ironclad armors of han and dozillions of men on field shooting crossbow rain.

I have been disappointed with Jackie Chan's latest movies. Actually a lot of Chinese movies recently tend to suck.

Why are you ranting? Obviously, there are a few Chinese movies that we could easily tell have fantasy elements drawn in, and could dismiss its historical inaccuracy and watch it for entertainment, much like movies in the West. But you've barely touched the tip of the ice berg of Chinese motion picture and is very ignorant if you say "one another of those propagandalike movies on chinese superpowers." There is an insane and uncountable list of Chinese movies and drama series that cover its history quite accurately, and does not propagate some fantasy of Han invincibility and superpower that you seem so worked up and furious over. Have you heard of [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Han_Wu_Da_Di"]汉武大帝[/ame]?

There's no need to have a pain somewhere because you've watched a few pieces of entertainment with fantasy elements.

Anyway from what I can tell so far, this movie will surely do a good job of portraying Roman superpower too (that armour). Chill brah its a movie.

Can you make me a list of good historically accurate movies. Of han china?
Not teasing , I really would like to see.... I haven't seen any ... Most of the movies I saw from china where usually unhistorical medieval like fantasy operas with millions of men , fake armors and unrealistic happenings.
I refer to movies like hero , that sure was entertaining but I found it quite propagandistic .
I have yet to see a movie portray proper han armors

Rather than fantasysupercuirasses associatd with a typical search for the "wow factor ".

And btw do you define the armors you show in that pic historically accurate?

I not demand a 100 perfectreproduction , but at least some bits wpuldbe nice.

Apartthat I am sure the movie will. Be cool and entertaining , but I dont expect it to be any closer to historical mor than the Lord of the Rings.

The Romans in the background look like wearing Lorica Segmentata.
