001Inspired by true historical events, the story of DRAGON BLADE begins with the discovery of an ancient “military journal” featuring different totem symbols. Through clues within, two archeologists (Vanness Wu and Karena Lam) locate the ancient city of ”Li-Gan”, also known as Regum, unveiling the tale of a brave team of warriors in the Han Dynasty who maintained peace along the Silk Road.

Jackie Chan wears the golden armor to battleHuo An (Jackie Chan) is the Commander of the Silk Road Protection Squad. As an orphaned child, he was the ward of the legendary General Huo Qubing. Now, with trusted subordinate Yin Po (Choi Si-won), he leads a troop of soldiers to safeguard China’s borders. They tackle the mission with a deep-seated belief in equality, tolerance and peace. However, it’s an era of deep unrest in which Huns nomads roam the northwestern territory occupied by 36 warring nations. One day, Huo An meets the beautiful and feisty Cold Moon (Lin Peng) when resolving an ethnic dispute. She fights him in a duel, only to fall for him when he defeats her; but Huo An is committed to his troops and teacher wife Xiuqing (Mika Wang) to focus on realizing his dreams of peace on the Silk Road. But then, wrongfully accused of treason, Huo An and his men are sent as slave laborers to repair the city walls of Wild Geese Gate.

Jackie Chan repairs the city walls with his menPositioned in the midst of a war zone between the Huns nomads and Han Chinese, Wild Geese Gate is a godforsaken trading post in the desert that is governed by the ramshackle leadership of Captain (Xiao Yang) and Rat (Wang Taili), his deputy. Here, Huo An encounters Lucius (John Cusack) and his legion of Roman soldiers after taking temporary command of Wild Geese Gate. When a sandstorm approaches, out of compassion, Huo An opens the gates to give shelter to the Romans. In return, the Romans offer their construction expertise, using foreign techniques, to help finish the repair of the city wall before an impossible deadline. Lucius and Huo An become trusted friends.

Power-hungry Tiberius had assassinated the consul and blinded his younger brother before the boy escaped with Lucius. Unknowingly, Lucius has fallen into Tiberius’ trap. And an even bigger conspiracy, involving the fate of China, is in play…

Dressed in exquisitely carved amour with red manes on their helmets, the legion employed weapons and battle formations never before witnessed on the plains of China.

The soldiers are a Roman legion led by General Lucius (John Cusack). He led his men east to protect Publius, the youngest son of Consul Crassus, from his vicious brother Tiberius (Adrien Brody). Tiberius had assassinated his politician father and blinded Publius. Lucius escaped with the boy and headed east.
