天將雄師 (Dragon Blade) (Blu-ray release 2015-6-16) tells the story of Romans joining forces with Chinese to combat an evil guy.  Although this is a Chinese movie, the addition of two western actors with considerable screen time and significance does help elevate the movie.  Although the story cannot be taken seriously, it feels partially new rather than rehashing the same old plots.  A few scenes and the ultra positive message of the movie makes it unrealistic.  However, on the whole individual war segments are well done, with some of them mixed with strong Hong Kong action styles.  Given there are so many bad Chinese / Hong Kong movies, I think this can rated as a relative success.
