Synopsis

Collection of Chinese historical epics. 'The Myth' (2005) stars Jackie Chan as both Jack, an intrepid archaeologist, and Meng Yi, the general from another era whose life Jack begins having incredibly vivid dreams about. Jack wonders whether his visions are related to the tomb he is currently excavating. As a series of dangerous obstacles begin presenting themselves, his life may well depend on unravelling the mystery of the visions. In 'Mulan' (2009) Hua Mulan (Zhao Wei), a young girl from a military family without a male heir, disguises herself as a male soldier in order to substitute her ailing father (Rongguang Yu) on the battlefield. As the invading armies close in, Mulan proves her skill and courage, sacrificing everything to defend her nation and bring honour to her family. In 'An Empress and the Warriors' (2008) Yen Feier (Kelly Chen) takes over the throne when her father, the Emperor, is killed in battle and sets about defending the kingdom with the aid of her father's loyal general and trusted friend, Muyong Xuehu (Donnie Yen). However, Feier's ambitious cousin, Wu Ba (Xiaodong Guo), is incensed that he has been overlooked as heir and sends assassins to kill her. Will Feier be able to keep a hold of power?
