Two Clips From the Vietnamese Actioner Clash

Johnny Tri Nguyen and Veronica Ngo’s “Clash” (aka “Bay Rong” in its native Vietnam) arrives on DVD Tuesday, August 9th courtesy of the folks over at Indomina Releasing. Here are two clips from the movie. Lots of talking in the first one (plot progression, I guess), but the second clip is probably why you’d pick this film up, as it features some nice fighting by the two leads. Check them out below.

Trinh (Veronica Ngo) is a mercenary working for Hắc Long (Hoàng Phúc), an elusive criminal mastermind, who seeks a hard drive that controls the VINASAT.1, Vietnam’s first and only satellite. Hac has kidnapped Trinh’s daughter to get her to do his bidding and now she must give him what he wants so she can get her daughter back.

Trinh assembles a team of mercenaries and ex-convicts, including Quan (Johnny Tri Nguyen), to recover the hard drive, but just as the mission is about to succeed, Trinh and her team are betrayed by one of their own and the hard drive falls into the wrong hands. Desperate to save her daughter, Trinh must hunt down the traitor before the hard drive is lost, but can she trust the remaining members of her crew?

Like Nguyen and Ngo’s “The Rebel” a few years back, “The Clash” was a major hit in Vietnam. It’s been playing the festival circuits in the States, but you’ll now be able to get your hands on it next month. No signs of a Blu-ray release, though, which is disappointing. DVD special features include:
