Quite enjoyable and with lots of action..., 21 June 2012
Author: Paul Magne Haakonsen from Denmark

I must say that Vietnam is actually making a good jab at the martial arts movie market, and "Clash" ("Bay Rong") is an enjoyable action/martial arts movie.

The story is about a group of people who have to steal a laptop from a group of French people. But there is a traitor in the ranks and the laptop becomes an object that several groups of people come to chase after.

The movie wasn't really a character-driven story, obviously, it was without a doubt driven by the sheer action and in-you-face martial arts. And that worked out well enough, so you shouldn't expect to see a lot of award-winning acting here though.

"Clash" had some nicely choreographed martial arts and it was well executed. I must say that Johnny Nguyen (playing Quan) is truly a rising Vietnamese martial arts start and I assume we will see much more of him in the future. I have seen him in 3 movies that I can remember, and have been impressed so far. But Veronica Ngo (playing Trinh) also did some nice martial arts in "Clash".

I thoroughly enjoyed the story, the action and the martial arts in the movie. There were a couple of laughable moments though, such as where they were hiding behind a couch to protect themselves from the fires shot from an AK47, or using a wooden table for protection. That just wasn't very well thought through. But in overall, then the movie proved to be rather enjoyable. If you like martial arts movies with lots of action and adrenaline, then you should definitely sit down to watch "Clash". Especially the final showdown was enjoyable, lots of gunfire, kicking and throwing punches here.

I had never heard about this movie prior to buying it from Amazon, and it was bought simply because it was a Vietnamese action movie and I wanted to see how well the Vietnamese would pull this off. And I must say that I am impressed.
