Editorial Reviews

Yue Feng (Yue Song) is a young thug with exceptional streetfighting abilities. He will stop at nothing to defeat all challengers - until, in an tragic accident, he kills a fellow competitor and is sent to prison. Eight years later, Yue Feng emerges a changed man. He no longer fights, and is looking for a new life of peace and fulfillment. But it's brutal on the streets, and redemption doesn't come easy. His brotherhood is destroyed, family members murdered, and a loved one humiliated - a deadly chain reaction that leaves him no choice but to unleash his power in the name of justice. KING OF THE STREETS, China's first street-fighting movie, pits real-life martial artist Yue Song against more than 10 of the world's top contenders in MMA, Jiu-jitsu, Jeet Kune Do, Sanda, and Muay Thai boxing.

Yue Song is the writer, director, action director, and editor of "The King of the Streets." He's obviously taking a Jackie Chan-like approach with this film, which is also probably a project that's very close to his heart. Unfortunately, "The King of the Streets" is nothing to boast about.

As you can likely already foresee, "The King of the Streets" wants to wow you with action over everything else. The story is lacking in every sense of the word. It's extremely cliché and predictable; a reformed rebel trying to turn his life around is sucked by into the world he tried to leave behind. The film also repeatedly references Bruce Lee not only in name but in presentation as well as "The King of the Streets" makes it a point to constantly re-use and or re-imagine the Japanese school fighting scene from "The Chinese Connection."

You begin to question the logic Feng has, as well. Who in their right mind would confidently walk up to 85 guys with weapons and try to fight them all at once? "The King of the Streets" wastes little time making itself a victim of a martial art film stereotype as it has that one noteworthy scene where you see the silhouette of the main character training on the roof as the sun rises and has an even more intense training session during a montage later on. The film tries to portray Feng as the guy everyone underestimates; he just got out of prison so no one will hire him, he doesn't really have any friends, and when he does finally get hired by somebody his co-workers constantly talk down to him. But as soon as they get into trouble it's Feng to the rescue.

While it is impressive that Yue Song wears so many hats when it comes to "The King of the Streets," the fruits of his labor are mostly sour grapes at best.

This movie is the exact reason I've stopped watching most everything that is out of American Hollywood. This movie makes all of the so called "blockbusters" or "epics" look like high school class projects made by people who are afraid to just grow up.

If you've never seen today's asian cinema, or think that all Chinese, Thai, and other asian films are just Kung Fu flicks with bad dubbing, then you are in for an amazing treat. These films look very real. No glorified and overly exaggerated the way american films do it.

This is better than Crouching Tiger, House of Flying Daggers, or any of those other pansy-looking "flying in the air like fairies" -types of current asian entertainment.

Check out the film releases coming from Well Go Entertainment or Magnet. They seem to get most of the best of today's asian films.

After this film, I suggest you check out, Bangkok Revenge, and Red Cliff. For twentieth century war dramas, check out Warriors of the Rainbow, My Way, Tae Guk Gi: the Brotherhood of War, and Back to 1942.

You'll be hooked on asian films before you know it. Look into the trailers on the films I've mentioned above.

When it comes to martial-arts movies, there’s not much that hasn’t been done. As a result, some of the fight scenes in newer movies come across as bland and, in some cases, even cliche. This is not to say that these movies are not worth watching; on the contrary, some have excellent drama to fill in the gaps. Such is the case with THE KING OF THE STREETS. While its fight scenes are mediocre, the drama that surrounds them is definitely worth the watch.

Now, don’t get me wrong: this movie is not bad by any means. It is shot well, looks great onscreen, and the acting is good, too. But the fight scenes are just sorta ‘blah’. They are ok for the most part, but the don’t bring anything new to the table.

THE KING OF THE STREETS has a great story and is all about a man on his quest for redemption after taking the life of another fighter eight years before. Personally, I think the death was justified, since his opponent pulled a knife and tried to stab him with it. But, I guess there wouldn’t have been a movie without it.

Yue Feng and his inner-dilemma as to whether or not defend the orphanage is the true gem of this film. Whereas the fight scenes are bit lackluster, the turmoil involved with his decision is what makes for good entertainment. Actor Yue Song gives an excellent performance in this role and makes the movie for me.

THE KING OF THE STREETS will probably not win any awards, but it’s worth checking out, especially if you are not looking for a traditional martial-arts film. But don’t go into this one looking for amazing fight scenes. They are decent but not enough to carry the whole film.

Story is great, slow development of plot. Action sequences are entertaining. Subtitles are great better than most. Would be nice if there was an english dub.

Typical story of a boy who becomes a man and after spending some time in prison becomes better than bruce lee..

Idont know about all that but was a pretty sound story even though the fighting looked like a wiff a wheel .. you know people going in a circle and swiping a bat at the hero untill its their turn.

still tho i liked it.
