In a different area, a group of peasants are traveling down the river by boat. The local guards pull them ashore for an inspection. Little do they know is that a young woman by the name of Jade is on board. Jade is a royal concubine who secretly carries the child of the emperor, a secret that could cost her life. She tries to get rid of any evidence that would link her to the emperor, but it’s too late, she’s discovered. With orders to kill the baby, the guards get ready to stab her when out of nowhere a masked outlaw comes in and fights the soldiers. The stranger says she’s Hua Tian, the same name of the other vigilante.
Meanwhile, in the middle of the desert at an inn, a group of marauders meet. They seek an ancient city with innumerable treasures that was buried by a sandstorm. Hua Tian, Jade, and Chow Wai, and a legion of royal soldiers are all headed toward the same inn to take shelter from a giant sandstorm. What takes place is a giant fight between the rebels and the evil soldiers. The rebels must choose between wealth and life or fighting for what’s right and possibly face death.
THE FLYING SWORDS OF DRAGON GATE is a spectacular IMAX 3D adventure. The story is slow in the second half, but picks up speed in an action packed climax. There is a brief moment where pagan idols in a temple are visible, and there is a mention to “the afterlife.” However, most of the movie promotes moral themes such as defending the weak and being content with what you have rather than being greedy.
MOVIEGUIDE advises extreme caution because of the violence, the mixed worldview, and some light foul language.
