Product Description

Before the West entered World War II, a Japanese death cult called the Temple of Hades is ordered to aid in the spiritual destruction of China. Their method: abduct their enemies' children and train them as killers for the Emperor. Young Vajra was especially gifted, but swears a secret oath of revenge when his brother dies. Now the greatest assassin in the temple, Vajra escapes to China and begins his quest to protect the innocent, and destroy the ones responsible for making him a living weapon. A former Shaolin monk, martial arts action star Xing Yu (aka Shi Yanneng) stars as Vajra in his first leading role.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pure fun March 19, 2014
By Fiona Q
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I only happened to see this because there was a showing at our local Alamo, but boy am I glad we took a chance, because it was just plain awesome.

There were annoyances and some sub-par moments-- my husband disliked the main child actor, and neither of us thought much of the so-so main actress, who did little with the tiny amount of material she was given. But the fights, i.e. the main course of a movie like this, were simply breathtaking. There wasn't a lot of gore, but the way the fight scenes were shot and acted often made me flinch while keeping me on the edge of my seat. The second big fight was particularly gripping, and the final battle was just perfect.

I rate this movie at four stars because I know it wasn't perfect, and I think certain things may grate on me in the inevitable rewatch. But it's a glorious, well-deserved four stars, and I don't think anyone who's into action movies or martial arts movies will regret a minute of this.

4.0 out of 5 stars FREEDOM, SIGNING, OR DEATH March 15, 2014
Format:DVD
This is a basic martial arts fight film with an unorthodox background that we have to read at the opening. Japan created a Hades death cult. They would kidnap/buy children from around the world and train them to fight. The object was to spread the spirit of Hades through fighting, killing the spirit of their enemy, in this case China.

The group was disbanded and then ordered to rebuild after 12 years because China was tough to conquer. They managed to gather together. There is a female journalist (Yamei Zhang) who covers them and gives us a speech on integrity in reporting. There is a group of Allied POWs captured in Burma, who employ some American actors. We quickly discover three of the prisoners were former cult members.

Our main protagonist is former member K-29 (Yu Xing) who became a Sholin Buddhist, a habitual good guy in Chinese films. He is there to save everyone but must compete in three lengthy formulaic slo-mo/ fast speed fights. My favorite was the one against Crazy Monkey (Heon Jun Nam) who looked like he escaped from a "Juon" film.

The final fight is depicted on the cover. Like "Kill Bill" there is a move called the "seventeen seconds of death." Did K-29 master it? When will he possibly use it if he did? Okay, this wasn't a mystery, but the film has some minor twists.

Vajra is associated with the diamond and thunderbolts. It is powerful, hard, and indestructible.

The film is four stars on the Chinese martial arts scale.

No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Plenty of violence with several bloody scenes. Faces being hit in slow motion, showing the skin flowing. No silly anti-gravity fighting.

5.0 out of 5 stars very good April 2, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Glad I bought this movie. It had great acting, super fight scenes and a simple, but interesting plot. years before, kids for all over the world were taken and trained to be killers. Those kids were saved and kiddie kidnapping was put on hold.....until now. So former napped kids (all grown up now) come together from different directions in different ways, to be saved, to save or help save new batch of kidnapped kids. There is more story to it that this. the location was lovely and i like how actors from other countries fit in to make it more believable. It was fun and entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best martial arts film in a long time April 7, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I was first reluctant to watch this movie since I wasn't sure how Yu Xing would perform since I've seen him in some of Donnie Yen and Stephen Chow's films but, he does a fantastic job. Also the main villian Sung-jun Yoo did a awesome job as well. Overall if you want a good film with awesome fight scenes, check this one out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another hit for Well Go USA April 2, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Well Go USA is quickly becoming the undisputed leader in martial-arts and import films. Almost every one of their titles I have reviewed, I have liked. Today’s film, THE WRATH OF VAJRA, continues this tradition. In addition to excellent production quality, this film is riveting in its intensity and contains some downright awesome fight sequences.

I like the concept of kidnapping your enemy’s children and training them to be assassins for you. It’s dark and evil, a deeply disturbing idea that only a cunning genius could conceive. I’m not sure if this film is based on fact, but I would be very interested to find out.

THE WRATH OF VAJRA is shot very well and looks great onscreen. I believe they used a RED camera to film it, therefore the fight scenes in the rain look stunning. The rest of the production value is high, and the result is a very enjoyable movie experience.

The acting is pretty good, but the sole performance I did not enjoy is that of the child who portrays Little Brother (I cannot find the actor’s name for some reason). He spends most of the movie crying, which is understandable given the situation, but his tears get annoying very quickly. I found myself grimacing whenever he came onscreen.

But thankfully, the story and the action in THE WRATH OF VAJRA make up for that minor annoyance. The drama behind the story helps fan the flames of the action sequences when they heat up, and there’s plenty of them. I love the fighting in this film, and I look forward to seeing more of the lead actors (Xing Yu and Steve Yoo) in future films.

I greatly enjoyed THE WRATH OF VAJRA, and I suggest you give it a look if you’re looking for high-speed martial-arts action. Be sure and check it out on Blu-ray in order to get the full HD experience; you won’t regret it. The film is available now in a variety of formats.
