Product description

Title(s) AKA: Wong Fei Hong ’92 || Wong Fei Hung ’92 || Jet Li: The Master [US Title] Languages: ENGLISH (Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround) Subtitles: None. Literally Translated Title: Dragon Travels Land Under Heaven. Film Director(s): Tsui Hark Film Producer(s): Tsui Hark Action Director(s): Yuen Wah Released: 1989 [Hong Kong] Genre: Action/Adventure Sub-Genre: Martial Arts Plot: A revered Kung Fu guru is rivaled by a disgruntled ex-student. But when this formidable foe begins terrorizing the Master’s schools, the old teacher calls on Li to lead an incredible group of former students from Hong Kong in a bid to seek retribution. Overview: Jet Li plays the student of a martial arts master who has moved to Los Angeles. His master, Uncle Tak, has been severely injured by an arrogant former American student. With the help of unlikely allies, Jet’s character manages to find Uncle Tak. After being put through intense training, his new friends are ready for a showdown with the bullies. Cast: Jet Li Lian-Jie || Yuen Wah || Jerry Trimble || Crystal Kwok Kam-Yan || Billy Blanks || To Wai Woo || Lam Ping Hong. Running Time: 88 mins. (approx.)


Fans of Jet Li should check out The Master, an early movie by the Hong Kong action star. Li is the anti-Stallone, all sinew and smile. His boyish grace makes him seem almost weightless as he whips through his fight scenes in peak physical form. Though the story isn't as strong as the Once upon a Time in China series or Fist of Legend--the plot, about a student of kung fu (Li) from China who comes to Los Angeles to help his former master, is serviceable but generic--the action scenes are dynamic and give ample room for Li's sprightly charisma. Everything about The Master is a little cliché, but at the same time it's all much more enjoyable than you'd expect. The editing is brisk, the actors are enjoying themselves, and the direction (by dependable Hong Kong auteur Tsui Hark) keeps things hopping. --Bret Fetzer
