Film: Legend of the Fist - The Return of Chen Zhen (2011)


"Legend of the Fist  - The Return of Chen Zhen" is good modern day chop-socky featuring the martial arts master Donnie Yen. The best fight scene is the opener, some of which you will see in the trailer below. It's quite something to see Donnie Yen continuing to kick-ass in fine form as he ripens to the wise old age of 50. Also, despite the advent and onslaught of CGI and wire-fu, which together have made matrix-esque fight scenes into vanilla, run-of-the-mill yawn fests, it's always nice to be reminded that there are still a few true martial artists out there who continue to bring it to the table, blending eastern and western techniques reminiscent of the great Bruce Lee.
