Florida Film Festival:4-17-2010

 

April 17

The Warlords (*****) A harrowing, emotionally involving Chinese war film by veteran director Peter Chan, The Warlords takes on the unfilmable Taiping rebellion and tames its subject by focusing on a disgraced General (the phenomenal Jet Li) who bands together with a den of thieves-turned-soldiers and teaches them to fight back and win. The only problem is what to do with that pesky absolute power once itís obtained. Chanís film feels bigger Ė Shakespearian, in fact Ė†because itís kept so intimate. By the final fratricidal battle, the filmís demonstrative heft is on brilliant, and enveloping display. Ė JS (6:30 p.m., Regal Winter Park; also 7 p.m., April 18 at Regal Winter Park)
