8 Comments



Or as it’s now being called, “Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen”. Regardless of what title it’s going by, it’s essentially Donnie Yen stepping into the shoes of Bruce Lee in a sequel to the kung fu master’s “Fist of Fury”. New images from the film via TIFF. Also added a new English-subtitled teaser trailer showing Yen in full Bruce Lee, Japanese-asskicking mode.

Presumed dead after single-handedly defeating all the Japanese fighters at the Hongkou Dojo to avenge his master, Chen Zhen joins the Labour Corps during the First World War. Deciding to return home to defend his country, he arrives in Shanghai disguised as a wealthy businessman named Qi. He quickly befriends the notorious mafia boss Mr. Liu (Anthony Wong), owner of the nightclub Casablanca, and Kiki (Shu Qi), the club’s star hostess. With the rapid expansion of Japanese influence in China, the military releases a death list, sending Shanghai into complete panic. As assassinations become rampant in the city, Chen disguises himself as the Masked Warrior to protect those who have been targeted.

Starring Donnie Yen, Shu Qi, Anthony Wong, Huang Bo and directed by Andrew Lau.

    But it’s also like a “Black Mask” prequel too. It looks sick and I want to see it.
