Legend Of The Fist: The Return Of Chen Zhen – Collector’s Edition (2010/Well Go USA Blu-ray)


Picture: A+     Sound: A     Extras: C     Film: A-



Chen Zhen 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.
