Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen (Jing Mo Fung Wan: Chen Zhen)

de Andrew Lau



Hong Kong cinema is undoubtedly experiencing a new age of splendor with an exciting revival of period and martial arts productions of which Legend of the Fist has become the best possible example. A trident of honor formed by Andrew Lau, Gordon Chan and Donnie Yen, is in charge of re-updating the legend of Chen Zhen, a popular icon played in the past by Bruce Lee, Jet Li and Yen himself, and turning him into the masked hero of a tumultuous 1920's Shanghai with the Casablanca cabaret at the epicenter of its intrigue. Nods to a glorious past, sumptuous settings, impeccable choreographies and a captivating Hsu Qi.
