Synopsis:
The might of the two greatest superpowers of the ancient world collide in an almighty clash the likes of which has never been seen before in this stunning tale of magic, myth and legend. Combining epic action with dazzling visual effects, and featuring an array of fighting styles and intense battles, Clash of Empires is an action-packed thrill ride from sweeping start to blockbuster finish. In 120AD, the Roman Empire is at the height of its power under the reign of Emperor Hadrian, dominating the peoples of Europe. In the Far East, the Chinese Han Dynasty is firmly ensconced as the ruling empire and is expanding its reach across Asia.
To cement relations between the two, a marriage is arranged between a Roman prince and a beautiful Chinese princess. When a nefarious plot exploits tensions between the two nations, only the long lost descendant of Alexander the Great can stop an all out war.

Life's just too short ! - Clash of Empires: The Battle for Asia review by BM

Spoiler Alert
13/09/2011

Visually this film looks pretty good. ... As long as you don't look too hard. The acting and storyline have no redeeming features in my opinion. While it tried to be an 'epic' it really only succeeds in being laughable.

Maybe gamers will enjoy the action but the fight scenes are so visibly speeded up that I thought something had gone wrong with my DVD player in the first fight scene until it happened again in the next and the one after that.

I really wanted to enjoy this film but could not bring myself to watch it the whole way through ... life's just too short

Malaysian B-Movie with terrible sound (and script!) - Clash of Empires: The Battle for Asia review by PV

Spoiler Alert
02/06/2012

This is just such a bad movie - maybe so bad it's good. It is probably the first Malaysian movies I have ever seen; and, if they;re all like this, I sincerely hope it will be my last.

So, the story goes something like this: a marriage has been arranged between a Roman Prince (sic) and a Chinese Princess. History just does not matter here - it matters not that Rome was a Republic and then had Emperors. They need a Roman PRINCE to match the Chinese PRINCESS - so invent one! Do you see? The bad guys - we know they are bad guys because they have tattoos and have acne scars - are pirates from some non-specified Asian country. Not wishing to spoil the ending - - which is just as risible and absurd as the beginning and the middle - but all ends well, and we are told in an epilogue all this guff led to the establishment of the great Malaysian Nation. Yeah right... I think whoever made this movie has been sniffing too many burning rubber fumes. Watch if desperate or drunk, for a laugh (at, not with). Otherwise, avoid. and the sound is TERRIBLE (because it's made for a Malaysian market who would have subtitles for the English speaking parts) so use subtitles - but only if you want to hear the words of the wooden clunky on the nose script.
