During the 16th century, Japanese pirates proliferate along the Chinese coastline. In 1557, the pirates take over Cengang in Zhejiang. After months of futile advances, Commander Yu (Sammo Hung) finally defeats them under the leadership of newly promoted General Qi (Vincent Zhao). The pirates, however, manage to escape. In 1561, the pirates regroup and once again attack the coastal cities of China. With both the cities of Xinhe and Taizhou under attack, Qi's army is caught between two fires. Even though most family members of his soldiers are located in Xinhe, Qi makes the tough decision to go to Taizhou and leaves his wife in charge of the fight against the pirates in Xinhe, knowing that the defeat of the pirates' elite team in Taizhou will bring long lasting peace to the coastal cities.

God of War by Gordon Chan Movie Trailer

“A grand historical action-drama backed by complex battle sequences, God of War tells the exploits of Qi Jiguang, a real-life 16th century general who defended the China coastline from marauding pirates and Japanese samurai. Severely outnumbered, Qi and his comrades must find and train new soldiers to withstand the Japanese armies, led by the brilliant Commander Kumasawa (veteran actor Kurata Yasuaki in an award winning performance).” [hkiff]
