Admittedly, being a long time martial artist myself, I’m a sucker for these kung fu movies. While realism mostly goes out the window, on the whole, they’re still a lot of fun and feature great fight scenes and moves. Donnie Yen is one of the biggest names in the genre right now (though not in Hollywood circles), and there’s good reason for that. If you haven’t seen his previous films (especially the Ip Man movies), then you’re missing out. But you can at least check him out in the first trailer for Kung Fu Killer:
A vicious serial killer is targeting top martial arts masters, and convicted criminal and kung-fu master Hahou (Donnie Yen) is the only one with the skills to stop him. Released from jail and into police custody, they soon have their doubts about Hahou’s true allegiance after a series of mysterious events. Hunted by an unstoppable killer (Wang Baoqiang) and the entire police force, Hahou finds himself on his own, leading to a final battle you have to see to believe in this action-packed, kung fu crime thriller from director Teddy Chen (Bodyguards & Assassins, The Accidental Spy).
Kung Fu Killer hits theaters on April 24, 2015.
