Originally a remake of the Yuen Biao/Yuen Wah film, The Iceman returns in a sequel (I haven’t watched the first film, so I may do a double feature review for both films! ). Add Yasuaki Kurata to this film turns it into a must see for me! Here is the official release info:
PLANO, TEXAS (January 24, 2019) – Iconic action star Donnie Yen (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, IP Man franchise) gets defrosted for the sequel to the fantasy-adventure Iceman when ICEMAN: THE TIME TRAVELER debuts on digital, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD February 19 from Well Go USA Entertainment.
