What was that film with Guan Yu in it?

Hi everyone, hope you're all well.

A couple of years a go a saw a trailer for a film about Guan Yu that someone posted on the DW5 boards. I don't know if the film is actually about him but the trailer gave me the impression he was the main character. The trailer had some awesome action and I was looking forward to it but then I just completely forgot about it, until I watched Red Cliff a few days ago and it reminded me. Does anyone know what film I'm talking about?

Thanks for your time

Do you mean the movie The lost blademan? It's a movie based on Guan Yu by Donnie Yen.

I think it's because it's pretty hard to find a suitable actor who has good martial arts skills, charisma, and height to play Guan Yu.
even in red cliff, guan yu is shorter than zhao yun and Zhang fei, but he's the most bad ass character from Shu camp.

I thought he was a pretty good Guan Yu.
