True Legend Review

Yuen Woo-Ping, a master of martial arts choreography, makes his directorial come-back in the fantastical tale of revenge True Legend, which Indomina Releasing acquired after it screened at Fantastic Fest last year. True Legend will have a limited theatrical release on May 13th, and packs some faster-than-possible punches. The martial arts choreography is as sleek and stylized as any fan of the genre could wish, and though the sometimes silly story went on far too long, the film was still a great showcase for Woo-Ping’s action artistry. Austin’s fast-growing genre film festival Fantastic Fest saw a deluge of martial arts entries last year. Director/choreographer Woo-Ping’s Snake in Eagle’s Shadow and True Legend both screened, and Woo-Ping was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award. Woo-Ping is responsible for choreographing the awesome fight scenes in films like The Matrix Trilogy, Kill Bill, Crouching Tiger, »
