In the mythical land of Huadu, Charcoal Head, a humble boy born to rule an empire must undertake his journey to claim his throne. It is an epic action adventure combining romance, fantasy, comedy and cutting edge Hong Kong style martial artistry.

Visually compelling with a solid story to back it up!
Daniel Wu plays a video game designer who overcomes a creative block up after a strange and wonderful rescue from near death by a punk bartender played by the wondrous Lee Sin Ji from a club. He finds in her inspiration for his next big game, and through their relationship they begin to learn to empower themselves through the pursuit of their respective dreams. Some wonderful CGI sequences that lead me to believe that Princes D would actually be a very cool, creepy and dreamlike adventure game. Lots of delicious visual storytelling, often the most powerful when saying the least verbally. And the supporting characters are wonderful, with interesting stories themselves that do an excellent job of underscoring the main plot. This is a really neat piece of work that I believe points to the potential of mainstream Hong Kong dramatic cinema when approached with integrity rather than looking for a quick cash in on the current big name (in other words, this is the opposite of Andy's Lau's awful recent flick "Wesley's Mysterious Files".
