Exclusive Clip: KUNDO: AGE OF THE RAMPANT Dazzles, Baby
Kundo: Age of the Rampant opens in select U.S. theaters today (Friday, August 29), and while I can't imagine that the idea of a period martial arts action movie from Asia is exactly new to anyone visiting this site, please note the extremely positive review by Pierce Conran, our Korea-based correspondent, who is not easily impressed by such things.
Here is the set-up, according to Mr. Conran:
A group of Robin Hood-like bandits called Kundo roam the land, taking from the corrupt rich and giving back to the embattled poor. Dol Moo-chi, a lowly butcher, finds himself embroiled in an assassination plot hatched by the young prince Jo Yoon, what wants to put himself next in line for the throne.When he backs down from committing the deed he is sentenced to death and in the nick of time, Kundo come to his rescue, subsequently recruiting him within their ranks. Together they try to bring a stop to the cruel Jo Yoon, who also happens to be a formidable swordsman.
Now take a look at this exclusive clip provided to us by distributor Well Go USA, which caught my eye from its opening seconds and made me forget what I was doing. Then you can go back to whatever you were doing before you read this article, all while making stealthy mental plans to see this movie as soon as humanly possible.
