Storyline

English traveller Jonathan Green (Jason Flemyng) receives from Peter the Great an order to map the Russian Far East. Once again he sets out for a long journey full of incredible adventures that will eventually lead him to China. The cartographer will unexpectedly face a lot of breathtaking discoveries, encounter bizarre creatures, meet with Chinese Princesses, and confront deadly martial arts masters, and even the King of all dragons, the Dragon King. What could be more dangerous than meeting eye-to-eye with Viy, except doing it again? What would be stronger this time, a staunch skepticism of the scientist or the old black magic that has seized power of Eastern lands? Written by Russian Film Group

An unlikely encounter between different cultures

It includes: the Russian iron mask, martial arts experts, pirates, monsters, characters from Mortal Kombat, a dwarf, old Chinese sages, tea leaves, people who fly very high, kosacks who do not speak, enemy brothers, supporting roles which are sometimes there for 15 seconds, a final scene worthy of a Marvel of the fox, very bad villains, very cowardly cowards, dragons and a lot of WTF :)

The script is a bit messy, and feels like you've seen it before. Some main characters have no explanations , and the Deus ex machina are numerous ... Do not watch this film for the screenplay, or to discover something ... No, it's pure entertainment.

And I have seen worse, much worse. If you have a childish soul, and you miss the epic adventure films, with an Asian tendency, this film could please you.

It's really a shame that the English dubbing ruins everything.

To watch on a Sunday evening to have a good time.
