Donnie Yen is one bad man. How bad? He can beat back an entire German army with nothing but a knife and some badass superhuman abilities. Of course, it’s all ridiculous, but that doesn’t make it any less cool. Check out a clip from Yen’s “Legend of the Fist”, his sequel to the Bruce Lee movie “Fist of Fury”/Jet Li’s “Fist of Legend”. If you’re interested, you can read my review of the film here. And if you want a second opinion, read James Mudge’s review here.
Legendary Kung Fu hero Chen Zhen is an iconic cultural mainstay in China and Hong Kong, having spawned both record-breaking feature films and a TV series. Martial arts legends Bruce Lee and Jet Li have played the popular hero, and now, Donnie Yen continues this rich historical legacy, but with a brand new take on the urban legend. With acclaimed director Andrew Lau (INFERNAL AFFAIRS) combining the best of today’s martial arts and superhero action with the classic spy thrillers of the past, LEGEND OF THE FIST is the rare action film that truly gives the audience something they’ve never seen before.
Variance Films is releasing “Legend of the Fist” in select Stateside theaters April 22, 2011. Check your local theaters for showtimes.
