    White Vengeance tells the story of two brothers contending for supremacy during the fall of the Qin Dynasty, which ruled Imperial China from 221 to 206 BC. As rebels rose, the nation fell into chaos. Liu Bang (Leon Lai) and Xiang Yu (Feng Shaofeng), became leaders of the rebellious army, and also became sworn brothers in battle. Xiang Yu and Liu Bang are close friends who both serve King Huai of Chu. King Huai uses a plot, saying that whoever can subvert the Qin kingdom in Guanzhong would be the Lord Qin, in order to benefit from the competition between Xiang Yu and Liu Bang. Xiang Yu is over-confident. He fights against the main force of Qin army, and entrusts Liu Bang with Yu Ji (Liu Yifei), the woman he loves.

    Liu Bang expresses his love to Yu Ji and takes the chance to invade Guanzhong first when most of Qin army is outside fighting against Xiang Yu’s army. Xiang Yu is furious & betrayed when he found it. Xiang planned to kill Liu at a banquet held in Hong Men, during which Zhang Liang (Zhang Hanyu), the mastermind of Liu Bang, and Fan Zeng (Anthony Wong), the mastermind of Xiang Yu, have a direct confrontation. But who will emerge as the winner from this epic battle and survive to claim their path to the crown?

    =READ AFTER WATCHING THE FILM BECAUSE IT CONTAINS SPOILERS=

    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

    Feng Shaofeng who plays Xiang Yu is smexy hot in this film! You know how chinese period films loves their cast with scrawny looking guys with long, dreadful looking hairs? BUT! BUT!  Shaofeng rocks the whole look a million times over,  I  totally fell for him after this.

    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

    And his acting was one of the few saving graces of this movie, so how can you not fall for those qualities, eh?

    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

    He looks very suitable for an army leader too, you’ll notice at the start of it, they were attacking a castle that belongs to the Qin Dynasty. And you’d see he was the one commanding the whole army, he’s sitting on this chair, and behind him there’s this traditional drum. For me, he looks utterly powerful while leaning back on that chair.

    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

    Liu Yifei is sooo beautiful here too (is there ever a project of hers wherein she didn’t look like a GODDESS? hahaha). For me, she is definitely in the TOP 3 most beautiful chinese actress of all time. Even without make Liu looks like~ gah~ im totally fangirling here, LOL!

    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

    Feng Shaofeng and Liu Yifei totally sold the star crossed lovers part. Though at the end they definitely overplayed the love story, but still…its better to have many than to have less, right? bwehehe.  By the way, the main characters of this film were based on true figures of Chinese history.

    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

    If you are familiar with this 1993 epic movie called Farewell My Concubine by Chen Kaige (which is also a novel and a famous theatre play) , the story about the Concubine killing herself so she wont slow down or hinder her lover’s chances of escape is base from Liu Yifei’s character here ( Concubine Yu ), and the General was based from Shaofeng’s character ( General Xiang Yu).

    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

    Although most of the story portrayed here were more fantasized, but for me, I fell in love with the director’s self-interpretation. And isn’t that important too that I still really like it after knowing the true details? Right? And the actions scenes were really excellent too!  The Audio/visual effects are really good too. For me this is really a movie worth watching.

    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

    Dont get disheartened about the film’s ending. Liu Bang is one of those emperors that is really worthy of his position. He has revolutionized the way China’s being ruled, it flourished under his ruling.  And Xiang Yu, for all his  brillance in the battlefield, has zero acumen in politics. He might have come from a family that could have help his career but he has never really used it to catapult him into position, instead, he has found his followers through exhibiting his sheer strength through every battles. He is like the Gladiator, with full-on charisma as a war leader, but essentially lacks the cunningness of a true politician like Liu Bang. If he had won agains Liu Bang, he wouldn’t have been able to curtail the corruption that still prevails inside the palace. He likes to treat things straightforwardly, which wasn’t a good trait during those times since its rampant that even your own blood brother would betray you for a few gold coins.

    .

    ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

    Xiang Yu was really strong. He’s also skilled in sword fighting (but mostly his skill was gained through daily battle) , and nobody had really beat him when it comes to one-on-one combat. In my opinion, he has only wanted the title King because at that time, being one is really an honor, its a position to covet for. And since day one, he has been preaching to his soldiers (most of them came from his hometown) that he will be a King for their town’s honor, etc. He is also a VERY BRUTAL and RUTHLESS person. But Xiang Yu has this peculiar habit of exercising his pride and compassion too.That’s why scholars often finds this character of him is what cause his downfall.

    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

    For all his “manliness”, he’s only ever had one concubine who was so enamored of him to the point that she always follow him wherever he goes, even if its on the battlefield. Journals of pass scholars or those that have mention him in their writings only mentioned concubine Yu too.

    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

    In the movie, there might be some misconception that Xiang Yu rushed into battle after his old advisor died and his new one return to Liu Bang’s side. Actually, there were 4 more battles that occurred after Xiang Yu launched his army against Liu Bang, but he was only defeated when the 8 councils betrayed Xiang Yu (a council is suppose to be the Kings advisors, Xiang Yu’s family control’s the puppet King at that time, it was common knowledge that the 8 council was on Xiang Yu’s side until that time)  and Liu Bang gain another General’s help and they combined their soldiers to ambush and outnumber Xiang Yu’s in the battlefield.

    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

    Consort Yu committed suicide a few days after the ambush. Xiang Yu lead what soldiers he had left that didn’t desert him, and effectively fended off Liu Bang’s soldier. He wasn’t really killed on action. He-did-this-something-that-shouldn’t-have-been-done-when-he-has-the-chance-to-escape-back-to-his-hometown. Ah~ really, even at the face of death he still valued his pride more than anything else.
