Kung Fu Killer (2014 aka Kung Fu Jungle/Well Go USA Blu-ray)

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

A vicious serial killer is loose on the streets of Hong Kong. Helpless the police decides to send one killer after another. Xia (Donnie Yen) is a convicted criminal in prison, but is convinced he can help the police find and catch the killer ...on the condition they set free. After time and time again the killer continues to elude the police, and they enlists Xia for help ...only to discover Xia is the next target in Teddy Chen's Kung Fu Killer (2014).

A serial killer is after the various martial arts masters. Xia is a convicted master behind bars and is the only one with the knowledge (and skills) to catch this particular killer. As the Hong Kong police are clueless, overpaid, and can't hit the broadside of a barn, but the killer has his own agenda, to become the number one, and to kill all the masters in one on one bare fist combat. The police's only hope is Xia. Xia is a former killer in search of redemption ...but when the killer threatens the woman he loves, can he become the killer once more?

This was a another Donnie Yen Hong Kong martial arts movie filled with non stop fight/action scenes with tons of major martial arts actors that, in some way, reminded me of much Jackie Chan movies/films. In the various fight scenes each took place in different areas and the characters used the environment to their advantage, but this is one of Yen's best.

The 1080p 2.35 X 1 digital High Definition image is top rate throughout and constantly impresses, while the lossless, Cantonese DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 mix is pretty consistent if not on the level of the picture. Extras include behind the scenes, Spirit of Martial Arts Films featurette and trailers.
