It feels like it’s been ages since I reviewed Peter Chan’s “Dragon” (known as “Wu Xia” in various other parts of the globe). Well, almost a year, anyway. The film is finally getting a limited U.S. theatrical run courtesy of The Weinstein Company, who have released a new U.S. trailer for you U.S. types out there. Check it out below, those who enjoy checking out English subtitled trailer for Chinese kung fu movies.
Liu Jin-xi (Yen) is a village craftsman whose quiet life is irrevocably shattered by the arrival of two notorious gangsters in the local general store. When Liu single-handedly saves the shopkeeper’s life, he comes under investigation by detective Xu Bai-jiu (Kaneshiro). Convinced that Liu’s martial arts mastery belies a hidden history of training by one of the region’s vicious clans, Xu doggedly pursues the shy hero–and draws the attention of China’s criminal underworld in the process.
Starring Takeshi Kaneshiro, Tang Wei, Yu Wang, Donnie Yen, and Kara Hui.
“Dragon” opens in limited release November 30. But for those of you who can’t wait, or don’t think the film will ever reach your part of the country, have on fear, “Dragon” will be available on Apple iTunes more than a month earlier on October 26th. Makes you wonder what’s the point in releasing it in theaters at all, huh?
