A Battle Of Wits

Review: In 370 B.C., China was separated into seven nations and several other small clans, one of these being the city state of Liang. The nation of Zhao is led by the terrifying commander Xiang Yangzhong (Ahn Sung Ki) who orders his troops to launch an attack on Liang in a bid to conquer the small city. Leaping to the defence of the cowed people of Liang is a warrior (Andy Lau) who goes by the name of Ge Li from the Mo-Tsu tribe, renowned for its defensive skills. He is their last hope as the terrors of Yangzhong's troops are unleashed. The future of Liang now hangs in the balance, with all their hopes pinned on the mysterious Mo-Tsu warrior.

I watched this movie, and couldn't stop making comparisons between the Mo-Tsu warrior and a Nihang Singh. There are startling similarities between the two, except for the obvious physical appearance. I'd like a second opinion on my thoughts, so if anyone has seen it maybe they'd be able to shed some more light on it.
