During the war, Chen Zhen was a hero. In the tempestuous years that followed, he became a legend. The exciting story of Chen Zhen is given a modern refresh as Donnie Yen takes up the heroic mantle made famous by international superstars Bruce Lee (Fist Of Fury, 1972) and Jet Li (Fist Of Legend, 1994).
The Shanghai of the 1920s is an exciting but ruthless place to be, as the Japanese enforce their expansionist ideals on the beleaguered country by any means necessary, while the rest of the superpowers watch on. One man decides to make a stand against injustice by becoming a masked avenger and using all of his exceptional martial arts skills to dismantle the evil that is besetting his beloved country.

this movie is more of a sequal to fist of fury, rather than a remake, it has a brilliant storyline and fight scenes that even bruce lee would approve of, look a out for the homage to bruce lee's kato.

fans of donnie regardless to what ever the story is, will enjoy donnie kicking left, right and centre to who ever stands in his way. its a remake? not sure, is it a reboot of the originals or a homage to it? i don't really care.. i got the film coz i liked it for the action scenes which i thought were pretty good and cinematic , only thing i disliked was the language was not cantonese, and there wasn't enough fights. lol
buy it if its a fiver or just rent it.

As a martial artist Donnie Yen is one of my favourites...this movie however was a big let down for me, (I may need to watch it again incase I've missed something). After watching Ip Man I was looking forward to this, but this was nowhere near as good...the plot was weak, the fight scenes were suprisingly poor for a Donnie Yen film...this type of story line (Chinese v Japanese during the war blah blah), has been better portrayed in other films...Fist of Legend by Jet Lee is a fine example.

Racist nonsense where Don beats ups loads of foreigners as per usual and not aimed at western audiences, watch fist of legend instead.....

Ok so it's the return of the character Chen Zhen to the big screen. Those who aren't familar with the character I suggest that you immediately stop reading this and go and buy Fist of Fury (Bruce Lee) 1972 & additionally Fist of Legend (Jet Li) 1994 - which is a remake of Fist of Fury. So anyway this movie is in a very different style to those aforementioned classics.. and I think that was a conscious decision from the director. Infact Chen Zhen in this movie is superheroish, there's no over the top superhuman powers but the action feels very cartoon stylised. This is not a bad thing as to be honest with the feel of the rest of the film it kinda works. The action is more akin to Black Mask (another Jet Li film) than Bruce Lee. Infact in this movie Chen Zhen adopts of guise of that character in order to safely carry out his heroics. The cinematography of the film is pretty good and the setting reminded me slightly of Miracles - a Jackie Chan movie. The problem with this film is that it never quite seems to capture the emotional anger of Chen Zhen or indeed the overall emotion of those two earlier screen appearances for the character. The plot moves along quite well from A-B-C but even Fist of Fury back in 1972 had a few more twists to keep it more interesting and dramatic. So in short - would I buy this - yes I did buy it and it kept me entertained throughout the whole movie, is it on par with the original incarnations of the character? - well definitely NOT! again if you haven't seen those movies go and buy them. This film sits rather as a homage I feel and I think it suffers slightly from that. The Bruce Lee cries from the Chen Zhen character in the final reels are definitely supposed to be an homage but they have to recognise that people will draw comparisons to Bruce Lee's incarnation of the character and the movie will definitely fall short!. One for the collection but not a classic! entertaining though.
