Iron Protector (2016/Well Go Blu-ray)

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

Wu-Lin (Song Yue) is a master of the Iron Feet-style of Kung-fu and is a one man army that stop cars with his feet and overcome incredible odds. After finishing his training, he is hired to be the bodyguard of Fei-Fei, the daughter of the richest man in Stone-cold city, but when Fei-Fei is kidnapped, Wu-Lin must not only fight organization that took her, but his former brother-in-arms as well in Song Yue's Iron Protector (2016).

All Wu-Lin's life, he has been training to become the ultimate bodyguard ...but unfortunately, he gets 'Princess' Fei-Fei, the beautiful but totally spoiled rich girl who's goal seems to be making Wu-Lin's life. a living hell. The threats are real and he will have to face an army of mercenaries, but the stakes are raised when Wu-Lin discovers his former brother-in-arms was behind the kidnapping, will he have the heart to kill his own brother?

One thing China has no shortage of is martial artists, like all martial art films they try to imitate superstars like Bruce Li, Jackie Chan and Jet Li. This movie is filled with non stop action and fight scenes as well a bit of comic romance between the hero and the heroine and works well. Time will tell if Yue becomes a breakout star, but this release cannot hurt his cause.

The 1080p 2.35 X 1 digital High Definition image is a pretty stable shoot, with no motion blur issues, no matter how fast and wild the fighting gets, while the lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 mix is not the greatest ever (a world of 6.1, 7.1 and 11.1 soundtracks notwithstanding), but it more than delivers what is needed for the genre. Extras include behind the scenes - The Chase, The Final Battle, Training, Stunts, Fighting Highlights and trailers.
