Storyline

Northeast China, early Northern Song dynasty, AD 986. The Khitan army takes its revenge for a past massacre, abducting General Yang Ye (Adam Cheng) and leaving his wife and seven sons to rescue him - and fall into their deadly trap. Led by the first son (Ekin Cheng), the seven - two of whom have never seen combat - set out with a small band of fighters to face an army of thousands, brave the treacherous Wolf Mountain, face the nemesis of their shared history, and find the way back alive - all to bring their father home.

This movie deserves a better rating!!!
6 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

I've just watched this movie and it's surprising to find its only get a 5.5 out of 10. I mean, come on, Saving General Yang deserves better! I went to this site to check the rating after I watched the movie and I expect it to get above 7, but after finding out that the rating was not even decent, I wonder if the people who rate it low truly watched the movie.

What's not to like about an epic tale of a legendary general, deceived by his devious comrade-in-arms, while a barbaric foe who hold a grudge against him ready to cut him in pieces, and his 7 sons, each with different personalities, risk their lives to save his father?

This movie has several memorable scenes, and some of them even gave me troubles to hold my tears. The fighting scenes were excellent. The only thing that keeps me from giving it a 10 is the ending, but overall, it's a joy to watch.

I highly recommend this movie!!!
