Listing Detail Tabs

The story of the legendary Yang military family has been brought to life on
an epic scale by director Ronny Yu (Fearless) in SAVING GENERAL YANG.

After being cut off from the rest of the Chinese military while defending
their borders, General Yang is trapped behind enemy lines by his northern Khitan
enemy whose leader has sworn to kill Yang and his seven sons. Vastly outnumbered
and without any back up, General Yang's fearless sons set off to rescue their
father at any cost.

China's psyche. This aspect gives the film its patriotic glue, its stirring,
old fashioned war cries and its spectacular flag waving fights.

The first major clash is the Battle of Sand Beach, a fierce horseback
battle with swords, spears, arrows and hand to hand fighting, all to a driving,
dramatic underscore. (Although eons apart, this scene probably has the most
resonance with the film whose title Yu has appropriated: Stephen

discovery of hundreds of bodies the enemy has skewered on spears stuck into the
blood soaked battle ground.
