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:

  • Aspect ratio: 16×9 2.35 Widescreen Version
  • Sound: Vietnamese 5.1 Dolby Digital, English Stereo
  • Subtitles: English
  • In Conversation: Johnny & Veronica
  • Cast of Characters
  • Anatomy of a Fight
  • Music Video
  • Original Trailer

    If I wanted to see it before I certainly don’t now, those clips did NOT sell me on the quality of the movie. If someone gave me a bootleg free I might watch it before I returned it.

    i saw it recently after hearing about it here. It’s not very good. I fast forwarded any non-action scenes.

    The fighting scenes themselves are not that great either. They try to do fights in the vein of Thai actioners, but the execution is just the same. They don’t have the precision to make the fights look real.

    The chick is in this movie is pretty hawt, but that girl in Chocolate would her own.

    I would have liked to give my countryman a thumbs up, but unfortunately, the movie shows how far Vietnam’s movie industry lags behind the rest of the world.
