Thousands of years ago in ancient China, a love struck sword hero fights against his destiny. He wants another chance to be reunited with his loved one and he gets that chance, in a far away place and a far away time, in the cold north, in modern Finland. Jade Warrior is set in ancient China early iron age and present day Finland. The past is feeding the story in present day, slowly revealing our warrior his real origin, his superior skills and his destiny. Jade Warrior - the first Finnish Kung Fu film - combines Finnish and Chinese mythologies into one film. Jade Warrior is an homage to Kung Fu genre strongly spiced with a truly original approach to Finnish national epic Kalevala. Like Kalevala Jade Warrior is a pure melodrama. A story of Kalevala's greatest hero. Written by
Jadesoturi is a truly great movie. Wonderful story, great filming, superb acting - the movie catches you and does not let go! :)
This is actually the first ever Finnish movie I truly enjoyed watching to from the beginning to the end and once it was over I instantly wanted to watch it again!
Real masterpiece! What is most amazing - the movie is done mostly by beginners in the movie business.
Hope the Finnish "big-time producers" will learn some lessons out of the success of this movie and will finally start to invest in the quality films, instead of usual crap they throw at as year after year...
