Storyline

Yue Feng (Yue Song) is a young thug with exceptional streetfighting abilities. He will stop at nothing to defeat all challengers - until, in an tragic accident, he kills a fellow competitor and is sent to prison. Eight years later, Yue Feng emerges a changed man. He no longer fights, and is looking for a new life of peace and fulfillment. But it's brutal on the streets, and redemption doesn't come easy. His brotherhood is destroyed, family members murdered, and a loved one humiliated - a deadly chain reaction that leaves him no choice but to unleash his power in the name of justice. The King of the Streets, China's first street-fighting movie, pits real-life martial artist Yue Song against more than 10 of the world's top contenders in MMA, Jiu-jitsu, Jeet Kune Do, Sanda, and Muay Thai boxing.

Very good for a first movie.
24 October 2014 | by rebeloxSee all my reviews

Movie is actually excellent if you consider they are all newbies in the industry. At least from what we get here on IMDb, the director and all the main actors are newcomers. And for a first movie, the acting is quite honest and directing is not brilliant, but above average for a first movie.

The fighting scenes are pretty good, although it's not street fighting at all. It's the same styled wushu for the screen. Which works after all, but don't expect truly street fighting in a more realistic way. At least the fights look realistic enough.

Overall, the only downside for the movie is that we'd actually expect more fights. For 85 minutes or so, the plot gets lost in some dramas that are really not necessary. The two folks (fatty and his companion) are actually useless on the plot and a total waste of time.

I'd rate 6/10, but it's a very solid movie for newbies and I'd say 7/10 for an action movie.
