Watch: Donnie Yen Stars in 'Kung Fu Killer' Trailer from Hong Kong
Five grandmasters hunted by a serial killer. This actually looks way better than it sounds, so give it a look. Well Go USA has released a trailer for Kung Fu Killer, a new film starring martial arts master Donnie Yen killer and a kung fu expert, who convinces the police to recruit him to track down a serial killer in return for his freedom. Sounds like the perfect kind of plot for a cheesy martial arts movie, but it seems to be a few notches above that. Charlie Yeung, Baoqiang Wang, Bing Bai, Deep Ng and Alex Fong also star in this martial arts thriller from Hong Kong. The big skeleton set piece looks cool, and all the action gets awesome in the second half of this trailer, so don't stop watching too early. I really want to see this! Enjoy.
Here's the official US release trailer for Teddy Chen's Kung Fu Killer, found on YouTube:
A vicious serial killer is targeting top martial arts masters, and convicted criminal and kung fu master Hahou (Donnie Yen) is the only one with the skills to stop him. Released from jail and into police custody, they soon have their doubts about Hahou’s true allegiance after a series of mysterious events. Hunted by an unstoppable killer (Wang Baoqiang) and the entire police force, Hahou finds himself on his own, leading to a final battle you have to see to believe in this action-packed, kung fu crime thriller. Kung Fu Thriller, also called Kung Fu Jungle, is directed by Teddy Chen (of Bodyguards & Assassins, The Accidental Spy), with action direction by Donnie Yen. This first premiered at the London Film Festival and opened in Hong Kong last year. Well Go will release Kung Fu Killer in US theaters starting on April 24th this spring.

Don Yen deserves to be much more of a household name. His films are as fun as Jackie Chan's and the his fight style evokes Bruce Lee. Looking forward to seeing this one.

Yup, this is now on the To Watch list - Ip Man was great, can't believe how many movies Donnie puts out 🙂

Okay, I'm sold on that. Some of Donnie's film aren't great but the fighting at the end of Flash Point is epic and the whole film of Ip Man is wonderful. I'd love to check this out when it hits the UK. Saying that, I've just checked Amazon and it is available. The reviews aren't blow away, I'll put it on my wish list.
