I enjoyed director Raimund Huber’s 2009 action flick “Bangkok Adrenaline” a hell of a lot more than I thought I would. The story may not have been exactly refreshing, but the fight sequences were strong enough to keep me engaged till the very end. Huber’s 2012 effort “Kill ’em All” is headed to DVD and Blu-ray this December, much to the delight of those who enjoy receiving direct-to-video kung fu movies for Christmas. Hopefully I’m not the only one.
The trailer for the flick is pretty intense. Not only do you have an “Ong Bak” fight choreographer helping out with the action, you’ve also got Gordon Liu as the villain. And while the movie may look a look like “The Raid: Redemption,” I think one this could be its own beast.
Here’s what the film is supposed to be about:
Captured international assassins are locked up inside a high-tech bunker known as the Killing Chamber. To break out of this concrete hell they must duel each other, fight deadly ninjas and battle against gangs of masked maniacs. And. if they survive this, they will have to confront Snakehead: the lethal, deranged top dog who will stop at nothing to kill ’em all.
If that doesn’t sound like an outrageously festive way to spend the holidays, then perhaps you shouldn’t be reading this article. “Kill ’em All,” which stars Johnny Messner, Chia Hui Liu, and Joe Lewis, will hit home video on December 11 courtesy of the good folks at Well Go USA. The trailer for the flick has been carefully embedded below.
