Clash (2009/aka Bay Rong/Vivendi Entertainment DVD)


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



Get ready for a fight that knows no rules, in the streets of Vietnam survival is whoever is the last man standing. Phoenix's (Trinh) daughter is being held hostage by the vicious Black Dragon mobster.  The Black Dragon demands her to steal a high tech laptop which has access codes to a military satellite and he will release her daughter. She teams up with a rough and ready bunch, their job might just get them killed, but with guide and strength of Tiger (Quan) they might just be able to pull it off. Phoenix finds herself tempted to be romantically involved with this silent protector... but trusting someone can cause you your life, who is Tiger and what does he really want? Is he friend ...or foe?Le Thanh Sonís Clash (2009) is that story.
A group of poor (but highly skilled) mercenaries have come together to steal top secret laptop from French agents, but each one has their own motive, their own reasons, but can money truly bind them together? While Phoenix is willing to do anything to get her daughter back, the rest of her crew is still looking out to line their own pockets, and if there is one less person in the crew... they get a bigger share. Tiger is secretly deep cover police agent, his true target is to bring the in Black Dragon... Phoenix and Tiger must both work together to achieve their goals, but can a female gangster mercenary and a secret police agent find a way to work things out without killing one another, much less become romantically involved with one another?
If you like drawn-out martial art fist fights, car chases, shoot outs then this film has it all. It is like watching high octane fights of who can take the most punishment and then still kick the other person's ass. In the gun fights, it seems everyone has the accuracy of a stormtrooper (they can't hit the broad side of barn), after using up all their bullets then cab they fight with their fists, which is a mix of martial arts, aikido, Taekwondo, Muay Thai kick boxing, and wrestling. Extras include interviews with actors, anatomy of fight scenes, cast of characters, music videos and trailers.
