Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen
Andrew Lau, 2010
China | 104 minutes

From the director of Infernal Affairs, this razzle-dazzle action flick set on the eve of World War II marks a new chapter in the mythology of Chen Zhen, the masked martial arts character originated by Bruce Lee in Fists of Fury. Returning to Shanghai after the death of his mentor, Chen (Donnie Yen) joins the resistance against the impending Japanese invasion––all the while unknowingly romancing a Japanese double-agent. Superheroic fighting and crazed camerawork ensue.
