King of the Streets Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: Yue Feng (Yue Song) is a young thug with exceptional streetfighting abilities. He will stop at nothing to defeat all challengers - until, in an tragic accident, he kills a fellow competitor and is sent to prison. Eight years later, Yue Feng emerges a changed man. He no longer fights, and is looking for a new life of peace and fulfillment. But it's brutal on the streets, and redemption doesn't come easy. His brotherhood is destroyed, family members murdered, and a loved one humiliated - a deadly chain reaction that leaves him no choice but to unleash his power in the name of justice. KING OF THE STREETS, China's first street-fighting movie, pits real-life martial artist Yue Song against more than 10 of the world's top contenders in MMA, Jiu-jitsu, Jeet Kune Do, Sanda, and Muay Thai boxing.

Review: This action-packed new feature is Yue Song's time to shine!  Writer, Director, Choreographer and Actor in this film, Song is really taking a hands on approach to martial arts filmmaking that hasn't been seen since the likes of Jackie Chan.  I enjoyed the story, although it wasn't terribly original, but the action was above and beyond what I've been seeing lately.  The editing is wonderful with tons of slow motion shots during the fights and a great stylized feel.  I definately recommend this to anyone interested in martial arts film.

Interest Range: Action
