Before the West entered World War II, a Japanese death cult called the Temple of Hades is ordered to aid in the spiritual destruction of China. Their method: abduct their enemies' children and train them as killers for the Emperor. Young Vajra was especially gifted, but swears a secret oath of revenge when his brother dies.
Now the greatest assassin in the temple, Vajra escapes to China and begins his quest to protect the innocent, and destroy the ones responsible for making him a living weapon.
A former Shaolin monk, martial arts action star Yu Xing (aka Shi Yanneng) stars as Vajra in his first leading role.

The group was disbanded and then ordered to rebuild after 12 years because China was tough to conquer. They managed to gather together. There is a female journalist (Yamei Zhang) who covers them and gives us a speech on integrity in reporting. There is a group of Allied POWs captured in Burma, who employ some American actors. We quickly discover three of the prisoners were former cult members.
Our main protagonist is former member K-29 (Yu Xing) who became a Sholin Buddhist, a habitual good guy in Chinese films. He is there to save everyone but must compete in three lengthy formulaic slo-mo/ fast speed fights. My favorite was the one against Crazy Monkey (Heon Jun Nam) who looked like he escaped from a "Juon" film.
The final fight is depicted on the cover. Like "Kill Bill" there is a move called the "seventeen seconds of death." Did K-29 master it? When will he possibly use it if he did? Okay, this wasn't a mystery, but the film has some minor twists.
Vajra is associated with the diamond and thunderbolts. It is powerful, hard, and indestructible.
The film is four stars on the Chinese martial arts scale.
No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Plenty of violence with several bloody scenes. Faces being hit in slow motion, showing the skin flowing. No silly anti-gravity fighting.
former Shaolin Monk “Xing Yu” is Vajra, kidnapped as a child an trained as
an assassin during ww11 sets out on a course to save the children who was also kidnapped like
he was, and in the proses of destroying the people who made him what he is, a lethal weapon,
the one thing these Asian movies gives you is a Deep set of History behind it, this is why I loved them,
the one thing American movies gives you is Superhero's, that nobody seem to find at the right moment,
don’t think I’ll get into there History, the way the people in the world is acting now, Oblivion not far,
with all the sink-holes happing around the world when people used to say you’re scum of the earth, guess what
it’s fighting Back don’t you think, even our parents an Ancestors are buried there, wonder what we should call them,
Some may think it corny or hyper stylistically violent. I think it's almost on a par with Oldboy, than which no higher praise.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com
I would treat this film like a prototype of sorts. There's clearly some great potential here from the director, the cast, and the fighters. They just need to finesse that last little bit to make some excellent stuff. If you're a casual fan of martial arts films, maybe look elsewhere for your fight scene thrills. If you're more of an esoteric, hardcore, or deep cut kind of martial arts fan, then pick this film up on your next binge purchase.
