Trailer For ‘Legend Of The Fist’ Has Kicking, Punching, And Shooting

You might not be familiar with the character of Chen Zhen, who is “returning” in the new Hong Kong action movie Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen. A quick lesson: The character was originally played by Bruce Lee in the 1972 kicking/punching film Fist of Fury. Since then, the character has been played by several different actors in several different remakes/sequels/television adaptations, the most recent of which is Legend of the Fist. Whew! Remind me not to complain about sequels and reboots here in the United States, where compared to China the situation is neat and orderly.

Anyway, the trailer is pretty cool, with a lot of swanky period sets and awesome stunts from Donnie Yen. He also puts on a costume inspired be The Green Hornet‘s sidekick Kato, who of course was played by Bruce Lee in the 60s TV show “The Green Hornet.” Sold yet?
