After the Sino-Japanese War, the Japanese army tries to once again gain control in China by hiring the secret organization, The White Lotus Society, to kidnap the military minister Zhang Zhidong. Wong Fei-Hung and his disciples try once again to stop this attack and prevent another war from starting.

I’ve read online that this is the 8th installment of something called the “Once Upon a Time in China” saga. I don’t know about all of that, but I do know that this is a movie that comes with a very old school feel and it just has a style to it that go along hand in hand very well with the simple but effective plot. This movie also has a character named Wong Fei-hung. Throughout the years, Wong Fei-hung has been portrayed by various stars, most notably Kwan Tak-hing (Story of Wong Fei-hung), Jackie Chan (Drunken Master), Jet Li (Once Upon A Time in China), and Eddie Peng (Rise of the Legend). Warriors of the Nation marks the 6th time Vincent Zhao will be playing the iconic character. He previously played him in Once Upon a Time in China IV-V, the Wong Fei Hung TV Series, and of course, the recent Kung Fu Alliance. That is a character that really makes the movie what it is and it’s always cool to see him again.

When dealing with a story that is technically eight stories deep, you can’t expect this one to be the best of the series. But if you are looking for a solid story with beyond good action that I’d totally call old school, then you’ll be more than happy with what Warriors of the Nation has to offer up to anyone looking for something with a nice pace and overall fun. So just sit-down and pop some popcorn and enjoy this one for what it is. You might not appreciate it these days but something with this feel is actually pretty hard to come by and are more and more rare. I’m not calling what we get here a classic, but I do appreciate it for what it is.
