The Rebel is a Great Movie
7 January 2010 | by stupidfreakyfaceSee all my reviews

I'm half Vietnamese and a fan of Johnny Nguyen. I was looking for a really good Vietnamese movie and I found out about "The Rebel". I was blown away. Johnny Nguyen gave an excellent performance in this movie, as well as Ngo Thanh Van, and showed his true abilities as both an actor and a martial artist. Between fast paced action sequences (which specialize in the Vietnamese martial art of "Vovinam") and the powerful emotional scenes depicting the struggles of Vietnam during the French Colonial rule, this movie definitely delivers a punch.

(Fun Fact: Johnny Nguyen, Dustin Nguyen, and Ngo Thanh Van all dubbed their own voices in English on the 2-Disc DVD.)
