The Scorpion King
4 August 2002 | by (Cardiff) – See all my reviews

Awesome kung fu movie! Won Jin makes possible the best debut in the history of kung fu action movies here! with unmatchable kicking skills and just sheer menace!

The rumors about his death are all false, he is alive and kicking (heh) On the recent Hong Kong Legends DVD release of this film it has a interview with him, wich is recent. It also includes an awesome showcase of the man himself :) a must buy :)

4 outta 5
