Exclusive: Martial Artist Zheng Liu's Back Alley Brawl in This BLOOD MONEY Clip
The upcoming martial arts film from first time writer-director Gregory McQualter brings together the legendary Gordon Liu, pop star Pitbull, and introduces martial artist Zheng Liu in this Australian production. According to the press release, the film uses no CG and no stunt men.

Blood Money hits DVD next week, and we've got an exclusive clip of Zheng Liu in action. What do you think--do we have a new star in the making?

Here's the synopsis:

BLOOD MONEY introduces American audiences to the martial arts sensation Zheng Liu, often called "the next Bruce Lee," and features world-famous rap star Pitbull and Hong Kong film legend Chia Hui Liu aka Gordon Liu (Kill Bill 1 & 2). When a powerful Shaolin warrior (Zheng Liu) turns to crime after his parents are killed and sister kidnapped, the drug cartels of America, Australia and Hong Kong are about to feel the sting of the world's deadliest hitman.

Blood Money hits DVD on August 28th, with a VOD release on September 4th.

Gritty and good, but the repeated slo-mo kick at 0:25 kills it a bit.

Either some bad wire work or a strange camera angle, it doesn't look very smooth. With the current quality and ability of other theatrical martial artist, it looks pretty weak.

I agree with both of you, what looked very good in the beginning turned to be very bad in the end.
But still, this is an isolated scene.
Why Pitbull is in this? Why?

I agree Kurosawa, strange camera movement and terrible choreography during this whole scene. I felt like the main actor was too stiff, the scene felt like it was in slow motion. I hope the whole movie isn't like this.

I believe there's a typo in their introduction:

I believe they mean to say, "often called, 'the next Bruce Li...'"
