Cine Asia Brings SHAOLIN To UK Blu-ray/DVD 12th September
Shaolin is a pretty damned entertaining film that I was able to catch at AFFD a few weeks back. There is some solid acting from Andy Lau, Nicolas Tse, and Wu Jing, as well as a nice extended cameo from Jackie Chan that loosens the mood for a few minutes in a good way. The wire work is extensive and the horses take a beating, but I really enjoyed this one and can't wait to visit it again. Here are the details from Cine Asia:
Experience the incomparable martial arts of Shaolin in this blockbuster motion picture event from legendary producer, Jackie Chan.As usual, Cine Asia is coming through with a TON of extras on this set, including a world exclusive Shaolin Wushu in Action featurette on the Blu-ray edition. I anticipate a great set!
China's last imperial Dynasty has fallen and a ruthless warlord (Andy Lau, House of the Flying Daggers) amasses a vast fortune through the violent subjugation of his people. Faced with a brutal betrayal, he runs for his life, seeking redemption in the fabled Shaolin Temple. When his enemies discover his location, he must stand with his new brothers and fight his life's greatest battle...
With breathtaking action from the martial arts director of The Transporter 1&2 and an all-star cast of Kung Fu superstars, Shaolin sets a new benchmark for Asian Action Cinema!
