Remember a few days ago when I enthused about Takeshi Kaneshiro & Tony Leung making a movie together for the first time in ages? Well... Takeshi is suddenly keeping busy. He's also reuniting with his House of Flying Daggers co-star Andy Lau in The Warlords. Lau, you'll recall, was Tony Leung's rival in Infernal Affairs the film which led to The Departed (Lau originating the Damon role, Leung the DiCaprio) The movies are so oroborus like, aren't they?
Lau is looking a little thick in this trailer. Jet Li also stars but since he's got third billing I'll assume it's a minor role (I thought he wasn't going to do action films any more?) This teaser seems to be cut from one single battle scene. Is it that narrow in narrative scope?
