There seem to be some blatant misidentifications here - if no one objects I'll remove the IDs of Ge Sha and Da Ni-Ya (2)

I added those IDs. What is the issue with them?

I guess I'm presuming things, but they both look Caucasian. Are their names translations? Where did you find the information?

The credits have character names, like a lot of Mainland movies. I just fast-forwarded through the movie to watch some key scenes and matched them to those. The guy who plays the British officer who gets impaled(? don't remember exactly) at the end is definitely Caucasian and 達尼亞 doesn't really sound like a real Chinese name either. Ge Sha, the actor who plays the priest, is Russian according to this website: http://cn.hkiaa.ca/hkiaa.ca/cn/gesha.aspx (there is a photo of him there too) but other sources say he's mixed Chinese and Russian. Either way, I can say with confidence that is him since I've also seen him in GUIDE (playing a foreigner again, of course!)

If I remember correctly, in the end I based the 達尼亞 ID on a press still that shows his death scene and identifies him as 戈林. The priest was less ambiguous since he's called 威拉裡 a lot by the other characters.

Ok, sounds good. The version I saw had no credits so I was confused where the IDs came from. Thanks!
