14 Blades is a good martial arts movie however I felt much of the charm or magic was dampened by the constant use of technology. As felt by many viewers here in IMDb, the effects used to make our characters jump around with ease or gravity-defying stunts or even throwing darts at ridiculously long distances at pin-point accuracy & strength overshadowed raw action that could have made this movie more thrilling.
Donnie Yen as Qinglong(ex-leader of government's secret police) is a seriously cool fighter, so is Wu Chun, as head of some desert bandits. Then, we also have Kate Tsui who plays the lethal female character Tuotuo with ease. Amidst all these action characters, the very pretty Zhao Wei as Qiao Hua(the only lead role who doesn't really fight) alleviates the mood of the movie with her calm & peaceful presence.
Verdict: Despite the too many special effects, I still recommend the movie for at least one viewing for all the action, especially the racy, exciting sword fights.
