Storyline

After four years Derek Wu is released from prison. Hunting for a regular job he tries to redeem his life by living clean.

Derek finds himself on the run as he is confronted by a dark past he cannot escape! In this homage to the legendary Bruce Lee and films of the 70's, martial arts champion Jason Yee serves up Kung-Fu action with attitude. Written by Jason Yee

It was Okay
22 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It wasn't the best martial arts film I've ever seen, but it was far from the worst also. It was the guy's first effort! LAy off him already! Not bad for a first timer (writer,producer director).

I think for one you all need to remember it's a MARTIAL ARTS MOVIE. Stop reveiwing it as if its great Shakespearean Theatre. If you came into this expecting to an updated ENTR THE DRAGON you would also be disappointed. Some of your expectations are too high.

I liked the fact that it didn't do stereotypical traits of the main character and they tried to 'hip' him up a little bit.

The audio was a tad bad. Bt ligthen up people. It was a martial arts flick. If you're an avid fan you owe it a watch. It will not become one of your favorites, but worthy to be in a martial art fan's DVD collection.
