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?

    “Makes you wonder what’s the point in releasing it in theaters at all, huh?”

    Can’t speak for anyone else, but even after having seen it a couple of times at home, I’d pay to see it again in a theater. Kung fu is always better on the big screen,doubly so if we’re talking about Donnie

    I thought this movie had it’s heart in the right place, but went totally off course. The CSI fight recreations by Keneshiro’s character was interesting. The fight choreography was above average, but the whole thing about him being a bad guy hiding out as a innocent farmer was totally unbelieveable. I won’t give it away in case there’s still someone around who is going to pay to see it in the theater, but the boss fight at the end was totally anti-climatic.

    But aside from this being a not so good movie, the time it takes for a movie released in Hong Kong to make it the US guaranties it’s going to fail. Most of the people who are interested in this movie have already seen it. Then you only have the hardcore paying to see it again.
