That trailer #3 looks breath-taking. Daniel Lee is one of the most gifted directors of his generation.
As for John Cusack, it sounds like weird casting, but he actually looks quite believable (whatever that means when it comes to a character from ancient times) as a weathered centurion.
I can't wait, though the 1st review isn't exactly glowing.

I highly doubt this will be a good movie at all. A LOT of his recent films have been mediocre at best. He hasn't made a good film since A Fighter's Blues.

I'd argue Three Kingdoms and White Vengeance are pretty good films, both visually stunning and quite thoughtful and soulful. 14 Blades is very fun (and again, a feast for the eyes). Star Runner would be one of the best films about martial arts, if it didn't have a massively limp romance eat up half its runtime.
I do think a reappraisal is in order for Daniel Lee. Most film critics seem to stop at the style and assume there's no substance ; I wish they did what they do for Tsui Hark or Johnnie To among others : give him the benefit of going beyond the style. They'd - hopefully - see there's a coherence and a depth to his filmography. I'm toying with the idea of writing a whole series of articles highlighting this, though there's no way that will change things ^^, as my blog isn't exactly a visit-magnet ^^.

I caught a sneak screening, it is bad like all the trailers suggest. It's like this film is a paycheck role for both Cusack and Brody. Hell, even Jackie's film with LeeHom a while back is better than this.

Though since you liked 3 Kingdoms, this might be up your alley.

I loved 3 Kingdoms and Little Big Soldier (which you mention), though I wouldn't be surprised if Dragon Blade is a more bloated film.
