Choy Lee Fut (2011) Movie Review

10 May 2011 12:25 PM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

“Choy Lee Fut” should be cause for excitement for martial arts fans, given that it stars genre godfather Sammo Hung alongside his real life son Sammy Hung for the first time. Directed by the team of Tommy Law (whose CV includes such undeniable classics as “Wife from Hell” and “Sex Medusa”) and Jackie Chan stunt crew member Sam Wong, the film also features considerable kung fu talent in the form of Yuen Wah, another genre veteran and Chinese Opera School pupil who graduated along with Hung and Chan. Filling out the youthful cast are Kane Kosugi (who fans of 1980s action may recognise from the likes of “Nine Death of he Ninja” and “Pray for Death”, and who still looks around 20), Steven Wong (“L For Love, L For Lies”) and actress Wang Jia Yin. The film kicks off with a hilariously unconvincing series of scenes in the UK (actually the »

Trailer: Sammo Hung is back again in ‘Choy Lee Fut’

10 March 2011 9:10 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Not too long ago, an incomplete and unofficial trailer for the upcoming Chinese martial arts film Choy Lee Fut (aka Choy Li Fut), was released. While the trailer showed promise, it was hard to really get excited about yet another martial arts movie that seemed to rely heavily on CGI. However now that the studios have released an official full trailer, fans of action veteran Sammo Hung can book place this film on their must see list.

Official plot synopsis:

An Official Trailer and a Full Synopsis for Choy Lee Fut

9 March 2011 9:41 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Not too long ago, we got our grubby little hands on an incomplete, unofficial trailer for the upcoming Chinese martial arts flick “Choy Lee Fut” (aka “Choy Li Fut”), a film that stars Sammy Hung and his father, action veteran Sammo Hung. As cool as it is to see these guys in action, I’ve gotta admit that some of the digital effects look quite shoddy. Then again, who in their right mind watches a martial arts movie for the impressive use of CGI? It’s something I can overlook, but it’s still a little jarring. Remember that poorly-executed sequence at the beginning of “Bulletproof Monk”? Prepare to experience deja vu. All kidding aside, I do think the film has the potential to be fairly kickass, especially since Sammo Hung seems to be fairly involved with the project. Only time will tell if it all comes together like I hope it will. »
