Editorial Reviews

This most amazing movie takes you to seven years after the apparent death of Chen Zhen, who was shot after discovering who was responsible for his teacher's death (Huo Yuanjia) in Japanese-occupied Shanghai. A mysterious stranger arrives from overseas and befriends a local mafia boss. That man is a disguised Chen Zhen, who intends to infiltrate the mob when they form an alliance with the Japanese. Disguising himself as a caped fighter by night, Chen intends to take out everyone involved as well as get his hands on an assassination list prepared by the Japanese.

Donnie Yen returns as Chen Zhen in what could be deemed a sequel to Bruce Lee's "Fist of Fury" aka "Chinese Connection" (1972), Jet Li's "Fist of Legend" (1994), or Yen's own "Fist of Fury" Chinese television series, from 1995. Or perhaps even the 3rd film following Yuen Woo Ping's "Legend of a Fighter" (1982) or Jet Li's "Fearless" (2006). Luckily the movie's much easier to sort out than my explanation of the work that sequentially preceded it! ALL are great films but none are necessary to view prior to this.

The film starts out in France at the end of WW1. I don't recall how much time elapses between then and when Chen Zhen returns home but I didn't think that Japan entered China until 1931, though the gap was probably explained and I missed it. He joins a group of rebels and, under the pseudonym of a deceased comrade, becomes part owner of a large night club run by Chinese fat-cats who plan to profit from war, civil or otherwise. In preventing an attack on a Chinese military general, Chen Zhen dons the costume of a movie hero (Kato, Zorro, Black Mask, you pick) and saves the man's life. The Japanese are outraged and try to find the culprit. In the meantime he is also romancing the club's singer (Shu Qi, "The Transporter", "Gorgeous") who may have ulterior motives of her own.

The fights: I try to be as objective as possible, but it's Donnie Yen's own words that I am basing my rating on: he notoriously (and justifiably) ripped apart poorly edited, wire-laden fight scenes a few years ago during the height of his "S.P.L./Flash Point" era and prides himself on choreographing better scenes, which he most certainly has done, and in many other titles than the two just mentioned. Do the fights in this suck? Absolutely not!

If you like Ip Man, like I did, you will like this movie. Period. I didn't realize it at the time, but this is a sort-of remake of Bruce Lee's FIST OF FURY which Jet Li already remade as "FIST OF LEGEND". No surprise, I liked all three of these movies, all done by true martial arts masters. This DVD is fantastic. Excellent picture quality, clear, accurate subtitles, and special features. You can't go wrong with this purchase. I hear this will be released in USA theaters in 2011, and that it might be cut. This DVD is apparently uncut as I compared the running time with the running time in IMDB.

With recent heaters like The Ip Man Series, Kill Zone, Dragon Tiger Gate, Flashpoint, Seven Swords, and 14 Blades on his resume, Donnie Yen has finally made it. This sequel to Bruce Lee's classic Fist Of Fury (The Chinese Connection) or Donnie's Fist Of Fury films (depending on how you look at it) is brilliant. It's a classic Kung Fu movie, a super hero flick, a love story, and a war epic all rolled up in one with a great cast including Shu Qi, Shawn Yue, The Great Anthony Wong, and Yasuaki Kurata. Seven years after his alleged death, Chen Zhen returns to champion his fellow Chinese in 1920's Shanghai during The Japanese Oppression. He conveniently finds a Kato uniform that fits him perfectly and becomes a one man wrecking crew....again. After seeing Donnie in the Kato suit and remembering Jet Li in Black Mask, I'm not all that excited about Jay Chou in the upcoming Green Hornet film. I'll see it and return with an honest review but I'm not expecting much. As long as Hong Kong continues to show him love, Donnie Yen may never have to headline a Hollywood vehicle. I take that back. I definitely want to see him team up with Michael Jai White (who doesn't make enough Martial Arts films) and Scott Adkins (who is severely underrated) in a huge, big cast, MMA movie. In the meantime, I'll just wait to see what the new king hits us with next.

Donnie Yen must be having the best year of his life. First the IP MAN series, then this gem of a martial arts flick. Thoroughly enjoyable for any fan of martial arts. This DVD is great. I am referring to this exact one on Amazon, exactly as it is pictured. There are a bunch of poor quality bootlegs floating around and I was victim to two of them before buying this DVD. This one is top notch with a super sharp anamorphic picture and even had english subtitled special features including a documentary on the making of the film.

Just have to agree with the other reviewers, this one awesome flick and one gorgeous looking DVD (for dvd). Was hesitant when I heard this will be out in the states on blu ray in June...glad I couldn't wait. Besides loving this movie (big fan of Donnie Yen), since seeing the trailer on The Man from Nowhere blu ray (another awesome movie and transfer), I knew I would enjoy this movie. Boy, that was an understatement! This has got to be one of the best foreign films I have seen in years. If you liked the US version of Seth Rogans Green Hornet, you will enjoy this import....it is FAR superior! Why didn't the makers of Green Hornet watch this first? Subtitles and all, this movie and DVD rocks! The anamorphic 2.35 video is amazing for dvd. The soundtrack really rocks on the DTS soundtrack. This particular version is region free and should play on any dvd player here in the states. Got this at a great price too. Cannot wait to rebuy this movie on blu ray in June. Lookin forward to the next Donnie Yen movie I can get a hold of...it may be hard to top this one! Donnie just reestablished himself as the greater HK action star.
