TRUE LEGEND is a Chinese historical drama set in the 1860s, following a general whose peaceful retirement is shattered by a attack on his family.

Violence

There are frequent scenes of strong violence, including stylised martial arts action and use of bladed weapons. Bloody moments include a sequence in which armour sewn to a character's chest is ripped away, taking flesh with it. There is also a bloody stabbing, sight of blood being expelled from a man's mouth, and an implied back break.

There is occasional use of mild bad language ('son of a bitch', 'bastard').

Cut required to remove sight of unsimulated animal cruelty (in this case, a horse being tripped). Cut required in accordance with BBFC Guidelines, policy and the Cinematograph Films (Animals) Act 1937.
