I remember that the protagonist (average looking white guy) was fighting an ancient sorcerer/magician who looked like a Mongol/Chinese guy and was using hypnosis to control people around him.

The magician had a sentient knife which he called "Chimera" and there was a scene where the protagonist tried to mind-control the knife.

I watched this film somewhere back in early 2000's, and I guess the film was recent at this point, because the graphics were quite good.

I don't remember the plot details, only several scenes:

  • the magician is throwing a guy in a uniform over the edge of high building.
  • the protagonist is naked and chained to a statue of living metal with many arms (or something looking like this).
  • You have a decent start here but can you read this guide and edit in some more details? For example, when did you see this? Was it new then? Do you know what the plot/story was or just these points? – TheLethalCarrot Oct 10 '18 at 12:42

This is The Shadow (1994)

Our hero fights a Mongol descendant of Genghis Khan with a fancy flying psychic knife called the "Phurba".

    The knife had a head/face if I recall. – Verdan Oct 10 '18 at 16:12
  • @Verdan - It did indeed. You can see it at 3:04 in the clip above – Valorum Oct 10 '18 at 16:13
