The ever-busy Donnie Yen has a slew of movies coming out in the next few years, but I’m always a bigger fan of his more contemporary actioners. I don’t mind seeing him in some big-budget epic Wuxia movie, mind you, or a period throwdown like “Dragon”, but Yen’s style is so ferocious that I think it just begs to be used against street toughs and gangster types. That’s apparently what we’re going to be getting in Clarence Fok’s “Special Identity”, and I for one couldn’t be happier.
Check out the film’s first trailer below. It’s in Chinese and has no English subtitles, but I think you can still guess what’s going on. Translation: Yen is a cop. He beats up bad guys. The End.
But in case you need more, here you go:
A cop and his team of comrades go undercover in one of China’s most ruthless underworld organizations to stop a gang leader, only to put themselves in great danger after being exposed one by one.
What I said.
“Special ID” stars Yen, along with Collin Chou, Andy On, Jing Tian, Ken Lo, and Zhang Hanyu. China gets it first October 3rd.
Thanks to Isaac for the heads up.
