Ah, those great folks at WellGoUSA have graced us with yet another piece of awesomeness! My friends, Donnie Yen is back with a Vengeance! (That’s right, with a capital V!) The fights here look refreshingly old school, and looks to put Donnie back on top after a few lackluster past couple of films (all still enjoyable, though!) Here’s the synopsis:

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).

I don’t see much in the way of wirework, and this looks like something closer to Flashpoint than anything else, and that my friends, is a good thing. The story kind of reminds me in spirit to the film Bloodmoon, and that is also a good thing. The fight in the streets look particularly great!  Teddy Chen is a good director, whose stories seem to take a more somber finale, and that may work really well here. Check out the trailer below, and get ready for April 24th! I may have a surprise or two before then that I think readers of this site are really gonna love…
