Comedy duo Key & Peele make their big-screen debut in Keanu. Read up on the stolen-cat comedy and this week's other new releases in our In Theaters section, where you can watch trailers, buy tickets, and more.
Yu Rong Guang and Sharon Kwok team up as, respectively, a Chinese mainland security officer working undercover and a Hong Kong cop, to crack a counterfeit ring. Nothing about "Red Fists" is particularly outstanding, yet it does its job fairly well. Yu Rong Guang has a good showcase for his spectacular skills here; Sharon Kwok doesn't get the same amount of action, but she looks great with a gun - her cutie-pie face makes a fascinating contrast with her utter seriousness when she's shooting people. There are some painful-looking stunts in the film, and the action doesn't lack ambition despite the fairly small budget. But for someone just getting into the Hong Kong B-action genre, there are better examples of it out there (just to mention one again featuring Sharon Kwok, though in a smaller role: "Outlaw Brothers").
