Product Description

Amazon.ca

Hong Kong superstar Donnie Yen brings his customary eye-popping martial arts to Andrew Lau's period action drama, Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen, which revives the titular folk hero originally played by Bruce Lee in 1972's Fist of Fury. Yen also played Chen in a 1995 television series, and his reprisal here again succeeds due to his natural gravitas. Opening with an astonishing sequence that pits Chen and his Chinese allies against the Germans on a World War II battlefield, Legend of the Fist soon shuttles back to China, where Chen joins a growing resistance against the invading Japanese. Donning a black mask, he takes to the streets to wreak vigilante vengeance against the imperial forces, which have marked several prominent citizens for death. The fight sequences are naturally the high point of Legend of the Fist, with Yen incorporating elements of Lee's Jeet Kune Do system into his kinetic moves. Where the picture stumbles is in its various subplots, including a tentative romance between Chen and Shu Qi, who plays a nightclub singer with connections to the Japanese. These scenes and others lack the same energy as the fight sequences, and slow down the film's forward momentum, which pits Chen against main heel Kohata Ryu. The mix of action, politics, and emotion in Legend of the Fist doesn't work as well as Yen's Ip Man, but viewers who watch purely for Yen's extraordinary fighting won't be disappointed. The two-disc collector's edition features eight behind-the-scenes featurettes, which run in total for about 40 minutes, and cover everything from set construction to fight choreography by Yen himself. Interviews with key members of the cast and crew are also concluded, as well as original theatrical trailers and previews for other Well Go USA titles. --Paul Gaita

“I’ve been aware of a lot of things in movies”some I pick on,and some I don’t,it’s simple,Who cares,
it doesn’t seem to curb my enthusiasm of what I’m watching,now this movie “Legend Of The Fist”
The Return of Chen Zhen”? is one of those movie that would be classed as such,but don’t let that fool you,
It’s a conflict that the Chinese and the Japanese has had for years,Something that I would Not know about
even if I read it in a book,I think it’s something you have to live to see,and be Born to it,it is very hard to find
every detail of every event,with so much chaos,but everyone knows, the atrocity is there and will not go away,
I can call this Action,I can call History but what I don’t want to call it is Lame,to pick what’s wrong or what’s right
would not be the right thing to do,
This movie is depicting 1920s China were a nation is divided by infighting,but Japan has become the most powerful force
in Asia, taking over Northern Shanghai,with the city in half by international conflict,
this was once played by Bruce Lee as well in “fist of Fury” so did Jet Li in “Fist of Legend”?Both of which I saw,and liked,

I have to say THANK YOU to Amazon.ca to ship this title out with UPS because if they used Canada Post God knows how long it would take due to the Strike. I have to say I am a very big fan of Donnie Yen's work and this movie was another blockbuster. The only sad thing about the film is it was originally filmed in Cantonese & Japanese when it was Released in Hong Kong Theatres but the Blu-ray verison is DUBBED in Mandarin & English not Cantonese. I can say that takes the movie down a notch because it was badly DUBBED in both languages. If you can't do it right don't do it at all.

All in all the movie was great and the action was the best and Donnie even put some Jeet Kune Do into his fighting as a tribute to the Great Bruce Lee who also played the character Chen Zhen in 1972 movie called Fist of Fury (AKA The Chineses Connection).

So if you speak Mandarin or if you're lazy to read subtitles this movie is best for you. But if you like the original version you have to buy the Hong Kong Version which will cost you more money to import it here.

Simply story format about how one part of a country can have bigger egos than their counterparts, makes no sense to struggle against your own kind even if they are from across the river. This movie has all the action of a martial arts film and some strange customs on respect. Donnie Yen knows his craft and he can act too, which makes this film right up their with the Bruce Lee films.
