    Flashy and fun, and a nifty showcase for Yen.

    This isn't at the same level of quality as Yen's "Ip Man 2," which played earlier this year and was one of the best martial arts movies in a long time. But it is entertaining, even if it does ask you to suspend boatloads of disbelief.

    It's just too bad that Legend Of The Fist breaks up that action with long scenes of well-dressed men and women sitting around in nightclubs, talking politics.

Donnie Yen is fun to watch as always. This Chinese-language film takes the typical anti-Japanese stance which is understandable given the setting. I would however for once like to see western actors in an Asian film be proficient enough in the language they're speaking as not to look like Jar Jar Binks attempting to perform Shakespere. Poor dubbing aside Return of Chen Zhen is a pretty good film. It is well choreographed and should satisfy action lovers. Full Review »
