Synopsis: A remake of the 1967 film, New Dragon Gate Inn was shot as a standard wuxia action thriller, with fast-paced action including martial arts, sword fighting and black comedy. Set in the Ming Dynasty, a power-hungry and ruthless eunuch plots to get his own kingdom by destroying rebelling clans. Using a traitorous secretary's exiled children as bait, he hopes to lure the clans into a trap. The rebels and the eunich's elite army converge on the rundown Dragon Inn right in the middle of the desert, resulting in an epic final battle.
