Plot & Details

Yuen Woo Ping ('The Matrix' trilogy, 'Kill Bill Volumes I and II', 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' and 'Hero') brings you 'True Legend', a heart pounding epic about the timeless battle between good and evil. Su Can's (Vincent Zhao) respectable life is obliterated when his vengeful brother, Yuan (Andy On), returns from war armed with the deadly Five Venom Fists. Weakened but not destroyed, Su Can learns a never-before-seen form of martial arts: the Drunken Fist. Armed with this new power, he returns home to honor his family through retribution by taking on his brother in a battle to become the ultimate warrior. Packed with distinct fighting styles--including MMA, knife combat and sweeping aerial stunts--and starring martial arts legends Michelle Yeoh, David Carradine and Jay Chou, 'True Legend' has Phillip French of The Observer raving, "It opens with one of the best action sequences I've ever seen."
