Yuen Woo-Ping's True Legend

Two brothers, one legend. We were asked to exclusively premiere a kick ass set of 8 photos from kung fu master Yuen Woo-Ping's latest martial arts epic True Legend and I just couldn't pass this up, as I really did love this flick. Best of all, these are awesome photos, especially in compliment to the official trailer, and there's even a few behind-the-scenes shots giving us a glimpse of the legend Woo-Ping hard at work. What I loved about the movie is that it's a true epic, the story spans lifetimes and there's a few weird, but awesome, moments, like those involving the "God of Wushu" played by Jay Chou. Check out all 8 new photos below.

If you haven't yet, go watch the latest trailer. Seriously, these look great, I really can't wait to see this again!

Yuen Woo-Ping's True Legend

Su Qi-Er (Man Cheuk Chiu) is a wealthy man living during the Qing Dynasty who loses his fortune and reputation as a result of a conspiracy against him. After being forced out onto the streets, Su dedicates his life to martial arts and reemerges as a patriotic hero known as the "King of Beggars." That is quite a plot.

True Legend is directed by Chinese filmmaker and legendary martial arts choreographer Yuen Woo-Ping, who has directed numerous movies including Iron Monkey, Fist of the Red Dragon, and The Red Wolf. The script was written by To Chi-Long, of Blood Brothers, Jet Li's Fearless and Murderer previously. Indomina Releasing is bringing True Legend to limited theaters in the US starting May 13th. Who's going to see it!?

This movie is awesome!!! An old school kung fu flick with new school attitude. The fight scenes are the best yet.

Yuen Woo-Ping rocks. Wish he's leave the past behind though and go sci-fi...

Yuen woo-ping is still on top of his game ,need to stop that evil westerner bit they include in all of these type of movies but a good classical kung fu story

Come on, its good but its not the greatest. It sure does not have the quality of a Hero, House of the flying daggers or along those lines. And there have been better fight scenes. You need to expand you library..

Nice pics, but this movie is like a year old, I've had this on dvd for atleast 8 months now. It's good, but not great. I want to see more kung fu films without so much wire work! I prefer the old school flicks, those were the best!

This movie is AMAZING! Yuen woo-ping has still got it! Also, I love the added content on their Facebook Page.

It's not a bad movie. Entertaining for the first 2/3rds, but the final act comes out of nowhere and, while not quite ruining the film for me, definitely left me with a sour taste in my mouth.
