About the film

Emperor Motion Pictures' 2004 summer blockbuster "The Huadu Chronicles: Blade Of The Rose", is now in production. It follows the company's smash hit "The
Twins Effect", the number one local film at the Hong Kong box office in 2003.

The film boasts an all-star cast of top performers from Hong Kong, China and Taiwan. These include Charlene Choi and Gillian Chung (known collectively as
"Twins"), Jaycee Chan, Chen Po-lin , Edison Chen, Fan Bing-bing, Qu Ying, the two internationally renowned action actors Jackie Chan and Donnie Yen, and Hong
Kong's top leading men Tony Leung Ka-fai and Daniel Wu.

At HK$80,000,000 (US$10.2m), the production budget of "The Huadu Chronicles: Blade Of The Rose" is much more than that of "The Twins Effect". The background
of the story is also totally different from the company's previous hit. It tells the epic tale of a young prince's dangerous journey through the mythical
land of Huadu, and of how he finally leads an army against the forces of the tyrannical Empress.

The movie employs the talents of Menfond, the company that won Best Special Effects prize at both the 40th Golden Horse Awards and the 23rd Hong Kong Film
Awards. Menfond specializes in designing spectacular visual effects to complement Asian style action.

"Blade Of The Rose" sees veteran action director Cory Yuen arrange a stunning martial arts duel between kung fu legends Jackie Chan and Donnie Yen.

Synopsis

This tale is set in Huadu, an ancient land ruled by a cruel empress (Qu Ying), a place where men are subservient to women. The empress' reign is disturbed by
a prophecy saying a boy will rise to become king, and restore the male regime.

Char (Jaycee Chan), a humble boy, is born to be emperor. He and his adopted brother, Leaf (Chen Po-lin), perform in a traveling show run by their adopted
father, Blackwood (Tony Leung). Thanks to their friend, Lao (Edison Chen), the pair receive a stone with a map engraved on it. They set out on a quest for
the treasure that the map is supposed to reveal.

Two lovely yet lethal female warriors, Blue (Gillian Chung) and Spring (Charlene Choi), join the boys on their journey. The youngsters encounter various
challenges before they meet General Lone (Donnie Yen), a master swordsman who seeks to overthrow the empire. To do so he must first duel the Lord Of Armour
(Jackie Chan)…
