"A popcorn movie of epic proportion!" --The Hollywood Reporter

"An avalanche of ass-kicking!" --BadAss Digest

Product Description

In 1920s China, the nation is divided by infighting. Japan has become the most powerful force in Asia, taking over Northern Shanghai. With the city torn in half by international conflict, the popular nightclub Casablanca has become a hotbed of spies, mobsters, English officials and the Japanese military- all looking to gain control of the country, with little regard for what happens to its citizens.

Into this den of intrigue enters Chen Zhen, once played by Bruce Lee in FIST OF FURY and Jet Li in FIST OF LEGEND. Chen Zhen (Donnie Yen), has returned to China after fighting alongside the Allied forces in Europe, bringing some dark secrets from his past along with him. During the day, he's known as "Ku", and appears to be just another wealthy playboy. But at night, he takes to the street as a masked warrior, determined to subvert the Japanese invasion while becoming entangled with the sultry Kiki (Shu Qi), who has a dangerous secret of her own. When his past catches up to him, Zhen is faced with near impossible odds- but his skills are formidable, and he's up to the challenge.

Combining the best of today's martial arts and superhero action with the classic spy thrillers of the past (and a healthy dose of film noir on top), LEGEND OF THE FIST is the rare action film that truly gives the audience something they've never seen before.

2.0 out of 5 stars Really? June 21, 2011
By Zenagin
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I'm a huge Bruce Lee fan going back to the early 70's. I've watched tons of martial arts movies ever since. I really enjoyed Donnie Yen in the Ip Man movies, so this is nothing against him as a martial arts action actor. And while all that might not quite qualify me, here is my opinion of the disappointing Legend of The Fist (the movie, not the blu ray - which by the way is excellent in terms of picture and sound):

The story line is barely cohesive and never really managed to captivate. It took me a while to figure out that one character was actually the chief of the Chinese police. That not withstanding, the only thing that kept me holding out for more was the hope of an awesome fight scene. There just never was anything memorable in that department! And like another reviewer (or more) commented... I just can't believe the degree to which they resorted using all the Bruce Lee mimickery! I was embarassed and I was watching the movie alone!

I really doubt that I will watch this again! My advice? Rent it... but be prepared to be disappointed. The hype of the trailers is the best you will see... in the whole movie.

Sorry Donnie Yen.... please choose more carefully your roles... you are better.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been way better... October 5, 2011
By Nikki
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First off I would like to say that I am a big fan of Donnie Yen. I think he is a great martial artist/actor; but what is up with his movies? I love the first two Ip Man's, then I saw the preview to this one (The Legend of the Fist), it looked good so I bought it. The begining was great, but it soon died down, it got boring and the pliot was confusing. There was too much talking and not enough action.

Another thing is that why do all the martial artist actors keep doing Bruce Lee's Fist of Fury. Jet Li did his version of it and now Donnie Yen. I'd say if you wanted to pay tribute to Lee, why not redo/finish the Game of Death. It was never finished because Lee passed away, I think if someone did that movie, that'll be a nice tribute to Lee instead doing his Fist of Fury, enough is enough, we've seen it already come up with something else. If you're a fan of Yen as I am then you'd probably keep this in your collection. If you're just starting out with Yen I'd watch Ip Man first before buying this movie, it wasn't that good. I'm afraid to get any other Donnie Yen movies because I fear that they won't be good. I've seen Killzone and Flashpoint and those 2 movies weren't good neither. I hope he comes out with better movies, because lately I haven't been feeling his movies.

Format:DVD
In "Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen," Donnie Yen plays Chen Zhen, a fictional character that first appeared n a 1972 Hong Kong movie "Fist of Fury" (aka "The Big Boss"). In the film Bruce Lee played the role of the hero, which has been taken up in many films and TV shows since then, including "Fist of Legend" starring Jet Li and, of course, a 1995 TV series starring Donnie Yen as Chen Zhen. Donnie Yen's new feature film directed by Andrew Lau is not a remake of the Bruce Lee film, but a sequel paying homage to the martial arts legend.

The story is largely set in 1925 Shanghai. Chen Zhen, who has returned from WWI, is now a member of the resistance group to stop Japanese army from invading China. Hiding his true identity, Zhen visits a club (named "Casablanca") owned by Liu Yutian (Anthony Wong), where Japanese and Western military officers including a Japanese colonel Rikiishi (Ryu Kohata) frequent. There Chen meets a beautiful singer Kiki (Shu Qi), who also has a secret or two to hide from him.

There are so many characters (including a cameo from Yasuaki Kurata, a familiar face of the 70s martial arts action films made in Hong Kong and Japan) and so many ideas and references thrown in. Some of the characters are unnecessary (do we really need Western characters here?). Some references are amusing (Green Hornet sidekick "Kato," for instance); others are pretty obscure (one character's name is Yamaguchi, possibly referring to a real-life actress Shirley Yamaguchi). But wait, isn't this supposed to be an action movie?

Action scenes (choreographed by Donnie Yen himself) are certainly unique and powerful. The best part is the first scene in which Yen's Chen Zhen fights back the German soldiers in the WWI battlefield like a deadly version of Spider-man.

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't do much for me July 6, 2011
By Jo King
Format:DVD
Have really been enjoying watching Donnie Yen act and perform, but this drama, just had to much setting up of characters. Bruce Lee and Jet Li have played the popular character, but did not really see a need for another version. The early war, combat scene is amazing. But suddenly it gets into drama and very little else. There are fights and conflict, but not really caring about any of the characters. Also all the different bad guys were a little difficult to follow. I'm on the fence recommending this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heck of a damn good movie June 7, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I'm now a really big fan of this actor Donnie, he reminds me of what my elders speak of Bruce Lee. I've seen the bruce lee films & they have a ton of duspense, but in this new style with Donnie, it's an "Let's get it over with!". I received this bluray in new conditions just like promised. Thank you, i look forward in purchasing more in the near future.
