I hadn’t heard much about director Yue Song’s “The King of the Streets” until just a few days ago. From the looks of the trailer, it’s definitely something I could enjoy. The number of people taking part in the film’s numerous fight sequences is simply staggering; I can’t imagine trying to choreograph something on this scale. As it turns out, I’ll get a chance to check everything out when the flick lands on home video this July courtesy of Well Go USA. How lucky is that?
A synopsis? Why sure:
Set in the gritty underbelly of modern day Beijing, the film follows the story of Fang, an ex-convict who is given a second chance of fulfilling his dream of a better life, and breaking away from his labeled status in society. We follow Fang as he discovers a possible future, and as he clashes with his past. His journey takes him through newfound friendships, to exceedingly violent conflicts, causing him to experience the deepest unspoken love, and also the darkest hatred. The film features an up and coming Chinese Martial Arts actor Yuen Song, as well as many real life professional fighters, all combining efforts to show some of the most cerebral and kinetic fight sequences to grace the screen.
Remember, kids: “The King of the Streets” hits Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download on July 23, 2013. If you’re lucky, it may even show up on Netflix streaming. That would be ideal. When you’re ready, check out the trailer below. There are lots of feet and fists flying around, so be sure to wear a helmet.
