See, now why in the world is it so rare to find such well-staged, well-shot, and quite simply exhilarating action set pieces like the one previewed below from Donnie Yen's LEGEND OF THE FIST: THE RETURN OF CHEN ZHEN here in Western films? Thank goodness for stuff like Joe Wright's recently released HANNA, which is one of those rarities here. But for the most part, nothing we typically see can hold a candle to even just the 1-minute and change of badassery we're treated to below.

LEGEND OF THE FIST: THE RETURN OF CHEN ZHEN f*cks your shit up in limited release on April 22nd.

Synopsis: In 1925, the nation of China is divided by infighting, and Japan has become the most powerful force in Asia. With the city of Shanghai torn in half by international conflict, Club Casablanca has become a hotbed of spies, mobsters, English officials and the Japanese military - all looking to gain control of the country, with little regard for what happens to its citizenry. Into this den of intrigue enters Chen Zhen (Donnie Yen), who has returned to China after fighting alongside the Allied forces in Europe, bringing some dark secrets from his past along with him. During the day, he's known as "Qi", and appears to be just another wealthy playboy. But at night, he takes to the street as a masked warrior, determined to subvert the Japanese invasion while becoming entangled with the sultry Kiki (Shu Qi), who has a dangerous secret of her own. When his past catches up to him, Zhen is faced with near impossible odds - but his skills are formidable, and he's up to the challenge.

Donnie Yen is awesome, so does his sister - Chris Yen. Check her out in "Give 'Em Hell, Malone". Also check out Donnie Yen in Ip Man 1&2. Yen at his best.
