Mutant-Heavy Trailer for Benny Chan’s Sci-Fi Thriller City Under Siege

1 Comment

I am ready to watch veteran Hong Kong director Benny Chan’s “City Under Siege” right now. Seriously — right freaking now. Considering my lukewarm feelings towards Chan’s body of work, you’d think that this moderately hokey actioner would insult my sensitive cinematic sensibilities, but that’s simply not the case. After all, how could you possibly go wrong with a stylized motion picture filled to overflowing with hideous mutants, numerous explosions, and an assortment of martial arts tomfoolery? You can’t. In theory, anyway. The latest trailer — which arrives courtesy of Twitch — only adds several stinky gallons of highly-flammable fuel to my cinematic excitement. If you’re curious as to what the hell I’m rambling about, feast your eyes on the clip embedded below.

Understanding will follow shortly.

When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at)

    I miss the 90’s hong kong action, this stuff is too over the top! Donnie Yen, Jackie Chan, Jet Lee, Moon Lee, Chow Yun Fat, Sammo Hung, THE BEST! This new CGI stuff sucks, Tony Jaa and Jeeja Yanin are the most interesting to watch these days, and they are Thai, there are no new up-and-coming HK actors on the scene who are as good…. sad times.
