Storyline

In an age of turmoil, heroes will rise. . . It is the end of the 2nd Century and China is in a state of turmoil. The land is divided by warlords and the country is facing famine, droughts, and invasion from bordering tribes. On top of the problems the country is facing, Zhang Jiao and his brothers begin to rebel against the Han, while advocating the arrival of a new era, the era of the "Yellow Dragon," implying that if people followed him, they would lead prosperous lives. Thousands of desperate villagers flocked to follow Zhang Jiao as they raided government offices and plundered towns and villages alike in protest of heavy taxation, wearing only a "yellow turban" on their heads. As their strengths and numbers grew, the "Yellow Turbans" overthrew some of the Imperial Court's best generals and strongest forces.

A Great Epic
7 December 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Before watching this series, I had read the epic novel "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" and I was well aware of the history surrounding the period after the death of the First Emperor. Usually the movie does not do justice to the novel, but this series does it justice and more. The only exception is the actor chosen to play Lu Bu. An amazing movie. And an amazing period in Chinese history.
