has just recently returned home to China
after the war, but what he finds is his country in chaos, his people are
divided, and various generals, leaders of China rather fight each other than
the foreigners. It streets are filled
with foreign soldiers from other countries, countries like England, Japan, and
the USA who are looking to gain control of the country, waiting to see who will
come out on top. The foreign powers use their spies and assassins to keep
it's citizen paranoid and fighting one another in Legend Of The Fist: The Return Of Chen Zhen.
Zhen joins the underground resistance to stop these foreign powers from
undermining his country. During the day
he is 'Ku' a wealthy playboy and he infiltrates high society to mingle with the
social elite. At night, he dons a black
mask (based on Green Hornet's sidekick Kato) and fighting those who would
appose a unified China.
But when his cover is blown is his martial arts skills up to the task of
stopping all the soldiers, spies and assassins?
Chen Zhen is a character once played by Bruce Lee in Fist of Fury and Jet Li in Fist
of Legend. The main character is
endowed with the spirit of China;
his only wish was to see his people work together under one nation. He tries to unite his people and to gain
support by giving it's citizens a hero, protecting the people from the
assassins. Ironically it was only
after the fall of the resistance did the people unify together as a
country. The movie was like watching a Chinese Batman, a man with dual
identities fighting to protect his city. The film had excellent costuming and casting,
if you like martial arts then this film certainly is a must see. Extras include behind the scenes, cast &
crew interviews and trailers.
