Dragon Blade is a period action film directed by Daniel Lee and released in 2015. The movie stars Jackie Chan, John Cusack and Adrien Brody in lead roles. It is a historical epic set in China during the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220 AD) and follows the story of a Roman general and a Chinese commander who team up to save a city from invading forces.

The story begins with Huo An (Jackie Chan), the captain of the Silk Road protection squad, who is framed for a crime he didn't commit and exiled to Wild Geese Gate, a remote fort where he meets Lucius (John Cusack), a Roman soldier who has fled to China after escaping from his own country. In Wild Geese Gate, Huo An and his men are tasked with restoring and maintaining peace on the Silk Road. Meanwhile, the Roman emperor Tiberius (Adrien Brody) sends one of his best generals named Corvus (Jozef Waite) to China with a battalion of soldiers to capture the border town of Liang, which they believe to be rich in gold.

When Corvus arrives at Liang, he finds Huo An and his squad standing in his way, and thus initiates an epic battle. During the fight, Huo An and his squad are outmatched and outnumbered by the Romans, but at the last minute, they are saved by a group of runaway Roman soldiers led by Lucius. After discovering that their homes and families have been destroyed by the corrupt and power-hungry Tiberius, Lucius and his men join Huo An and his squad to protect Liang and stop Corvus from capturing it.

What follows is an intense and action-packed adventure as Huo An, Lucius, and their soldiers unite to save the nearby city from the attack. The two groups use their combat strengths and military tactics to fight against a powerful enemy with weapons, horses, and fire. They also learn about each other's cultures and values, forging bonds of friendship and respect in the process.

One of the most impressive features of Dragon Blade is its stunning cinematography, with masterful use of aerial shots and sweeping camera movements that capture the vast landscapes and grandeur of the battle scenes. The movie also showcases impressive sword fighting and martial arts choreography from Jackie Chan, adding excitement and energy to the fight scenes.

The performances by all the lead actors are impressive, especially Jackie Chan, who portrays the noble and righteous Chinese commander Huo An with a mix of humor and courage. John Cusack's portrayal of the Roman soldier Lucius is intense and captivating, while Adrien Brody shines as the ruthless and power-hungry Emperor Tiberius.

The movie also boasts a talented supporting cast, including Lin Peng as Huo An's love interest and Choi Si-won as one of the runaway Roman soldiers. The film's music score perfectly complements the action sequences, with a blend of traditional Chinese and epic orchestral music.

Overall, Dragon Blade is an epic adventure that blends history, action, and drama with a captivating storyline and memorable performances from its cast. The film showcases the values of honor, loyalty, and courage, and highlights the similarities between different cultures and people. Fans of historical epics, action movies, or martial arts films will undoubtedly enjoy this high-energy adventure.
