The Wrath Of Vajra (2013/Well Go USA Blu-ray)

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

A Former Shaolin Monk is forced to enter the Temple of Hades to battle his former brothers in arms in a life and death match to save the abducted children. Trained in the deadly arts of assassination, the Hades disciples plans to revive the Temple of Hades with the children and captured prisoners in a bloody sacrificial death match to their God Hades in order to create the ultimate warrior in Wing-cheong Law's The Wrath Of Vajra (2013).

K-29 (Shi Yanneng aka Yu Xing) was a former gifted student of Hades until he killed his brother and rejected the teaching of Hades and became a Shaolin monk. Years later, the brotherhood of Hades began abducting and training children again, turning them into heartless killing machines and then returning to their home to spread the terror of Hades. K-29 vows to stop endless cycle of violence and free all those Hades has captured, that Hades is no match for the wrath of Vajra.

This film reminded me a lot of Mortal Kombat (minus the costumes), warriors are gathered from all over the world for mortal hand to hand combat. The martial arts were good, but I was more impressed with was how many non Asian actors spoke fluently in a foreign language, but if you want to stop an evil organization that prided itself on hand to hand combat, use guns, a platoon of soldiers with guns can wipe out 1,000 bare fisted martial artists.

The 1080p 2.35 X 1 digital High Definition image transfer looks great as the producers really put the money and production value on the screen, while the DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless mix is a solid multi-channel experience matching the image in a release that has plenty of reference-quality moments. Extras include a making of the film featurette and trailers.
