Film: True Legend

Su is a decorated general in the Imperial army. Following a successful mission to rescue the prince, he decides to retire and live peacefully, opening his own martial arts school. However, his peace is short-lived when his adopted brother Ma arrives to murder Su and his father, corrupted by an evil style.

The story that unfolds is equal parts fantasy epic, historical drama, and character piece. A flawed man in a flawed world, Su emerges a folk hero, and a true legend.

Tropes used:

  • Artistic License Martial Arts: Su's drunken fighting incorporates modern breakdancing moves, in an effort to keep the action appealing to mass audiences
