Watch THE GUILLOTINES In Action In Exclusive Clip
Andrew Lau's Hong Kong action picture The Guillotines hits VOD platforms across the US today in advance of a June 14th theatrical release from WellGo USA and ScreenAnarchy has an exclusive clip to share from the film.

During the Manchurian-ruled Qing Dynasty, Emperor Yong Zheng established a secret assassination squad known as the Guillotines to eliminate all who opposed him. Once heavily favored by the Emperor, the Guillotines are deemed expendable once Emperor Qian Long ascends to the throne and adopts Western ideas and technology. To consolidate his power under a new regime, the Emperor continues to use the Guillotines to persecute the conquered Han Chinese in a reign of terror and oppression.

Led by master fighter Leng, the top ranked guillotine squad consists of five young warriors: Mu, San, Tai, Hutu, Buka. Serving the Qing Court unquestioningly, they have never failed in 348 missions to eliminate their targets. But their success has made them arrogant and complacent.

Their next mission is to eliminate Wolf and his Shepherd gang. During the operation, the squad manages to trap Wolf. Just as they are about to execute him, the squad commander orders that he be captured alive. He secretly plans to use Wolf as a pawn in his bid for power. Wolf's gang of rebels ambushes the Guillotines in their moment of hesitation. Wolf escapes, taking Mu hostage.

With reports that Wolf has fled to the outer frontiers, the squad tracks him to a remote village outpost. On the other hand, the Emperor has sent his most trusted agent Du for the same mission and most importantly, to end the era of the Guillotines by replacing cold weapons with firearms. If only they make one false move, they will become the hunted. Facing annihilation, Leng and his Guillotines must outfight and outwit enemies from both sides.

Zhang Wen, Xiaoming Huang, Shawn Yue, Yuchun Li, Ching-Tien Juan, Stephy Tang, and Boran Jing star. Check the clip below.

Totally agree with Benoit! Only chinese movie that was entertaining for me was the Journey to the West directed by Stephen Chow. Other than that, most of them are bad. On the flip side, I have been watching a lot of Japanese and Korean movies which are getting better and better to the point where I have stopped watching hollywood movies.
