Like CGI martial arts? You’re in luck, because another trailer for The Pang Brothers’ “The Storm Warriors” (aka “The Storm Riders 2”) has landed online. Let’s face it, “The Storm Warriors” is one of those movies where you know exactly where you stand on it — you either love the crazy, outrageous CGI-doused martial arts, or you think it’s pretty awful. Luckily, I happen to love this stuff, so without further ado, here’s more of Wind and Cloud and their battle against the evil Lord Godless. Yes, those are actual character names from the movie. See what I mean? You’re either in or you’re out. So what’s it gonna be?
Japanese evil warlord Lord Godless (Simon Yam) desires to conquer China and imprisons a large number of martial artists trying to make them subjugate. Among the prisoners are Cloud (Aaron Kwok) and the martial arts elder statesman Nameless (Kenny Ho). Wind (Ekin Cheng) comes to their rescue and the trio is badly wounded by Lord Godlesss evil martial arts attack. The remaining martial artists sacrificed their lives to save the trio, hoping that the trio would beat Lord Godless one day and save the country.
Directed by the brothers Pang, and starring Aaron Kwok, Ekin Cheng, Kenny Ho, Nicholas Tse, Charlene Choi , Simon Yam, Suet Lam, Patrick Tam, Tak-bun Wong, Yan Tang, Anson Leung, and Byron Pang.
The clouds roll into Hong Kong on December 17, 2009. For the rest of you, look for it on import DVD in early 2010.
